SEVASTOPOL, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of the Sevastopol administration Aleksei Chalyi was unanimously appointed Acting Sevastopol governor by the Sevastopol legislature, who unanimously voted in his support.
Aleksei Chalyi has been vested with the powers to form the executive bodies of power in Sevastopol on his own choice, proceeding from the city needs. The structure of the city administration will acquire a more clear format after the city Charter is adopted, Chalyi said. "Now, Sevastopol has been in-between the legislation of Russia and Ukraine. The Russian laws have not been in force in full measure yet, while the Ukrainian laws are no longer in force," Chalyi said.
The present structure of the executive power in Sevastopol will exist for no longer than a month, the Acting governor of Sevastopol told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday. The city Charter should be adopted until the end of April, and then the executive power of Sevastopol will be formed in accordance with the Russian laws and conforming to the Russian model,”Chalyi said.
"All the officials of the existing administration of Sevastopol will retain their posts during the transitional period. There will be no reshuffle in the first stage while a tactical task - to open a channel for financing, is being fulfilled. The transitional period will be very short in terms of the legislation, but it might seem very long for people in Crimea waiting for their salaries and pensions being paid," Chalyi told ITAR-TASS.
