MOSCOW, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. United Russia faction member at the State Duma lower house of Russia's parliament Alyona Arshinova has denied the reports that she might take the post of head of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh).
Earlier on Tuesday, the newspaper Izvestia reported that Rosmolodezh leader Sergei Belokonev would resign.
"I am Deputy Chairwoman of the House Committee on Education. I coordinate the work of the Youth Club at the United Russia's General Council, and it is in this capacity that I will continue cooperation with Rosmolodezh," Arshinova said.
She reminded that she represented the interests of voters of the Chuvash Republic at the State Duma, and that their trust was dear to her.
According to the newspaper, other candidates for the post, aside from Arshinova, are former commissioner of the Nashi (Ours) movement Artur Omarov and Nashi's former press secretary Kristina Potupchik.
Arshinova said the newspaper article named "worthy candidates who could really come up with new guidelines and forms of work."
