MOSCOW, September 8 (Itar-Tass) - Big cities like Moscow should have as leaders not politicians, but people who know how to work, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said as he voted at the Moscow mayoral election on Sunday.
“Big cities like Moscow need not that much politicians, but depoliticised people, business people, who know how to work,” the president said adding in that work most important is to care for people and to have good attitude towards them.
The president said he believed his candidate would win, though refused to name the person.
Vladimir Putin came to the precinct in Kosygin Steet, where no additional security measures had been organised, and everyone was able to take part in the voting.
The ballots contain in the alphabetic order names of six registered mayoral candidates. They are Mikhail Degtyarev representing LDPR /Liberal-Democratic Party of Russia/, Nikolai Levichev of A Just Russia, Ivan Melnikov of CPRF /Communist Party of the Russian Federation/, Sergei Mitrokhin of Yabloko, Alexei Navalny of RPR-PARNAS and Moscow’s acting Mayor and a self-nominee Sergei Sobyanin.
