MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said he believed that serving chief sanitary inspector Gennady Onishchenko would deal with legislation in the government and problems similar to his work on the post of the Federal Service for the Protection of Consumers Rights (Rospotrednadzor).
In an interview with the Vesti V Subbotu with Sergei Brilyov, Medvedev said he considered the rotation of office right.
“Onishchenko worked long and he worked well. He is a well-known person. Now it is time to work on the other post,” the premier said, adding, “He will work as premier’s aide and, maybe, deal with problems similar to his previous office.”
“It is a normal situation: someone will come and other leaves,” Medvedev said.
A law on the rotation of officials has been adopted under which any leaders should change their office periodically. “I can be based on my experience: when one looks at the situation differently this helps solve problems. I hope that this can give a fresh view on a problem,” Medvedev said.
