SIMFEROPOL, March 12, 18:09 /ITAR-TASS/. Crimean leaders and government officials will retain their positions after the referendum on March 16 until reorganisation and new elections, Crimean Minister of Information and Mass Communications Dmitry Polonsky said on Wednesday, March 12.
“We will keep working in our positions until new elections,” he said and stressed the need to reformat the republic’s bodies of power in accordance with new legislation.
When asked when the next elections might be held in the republic, the minister said this would be decided after the referendum.
Speaking about his personal attitude towards changes on the peninsula, Polonsky used the phrase “Crimean spring.” “It is not incidental that we call everything that is happening here "Crimean spring". Spring is a symbol of hope, faith, freedom and future. And we are inspired by what we are doing,” Polonsky said.
