Valery Shantsev came under the program of renovation of governors and it’s not his age, told the “MK” Vice-President of the Center for political technologies Georgy Chizhov. “It is already obsolete, so to speak. His resignation was predicted in advance, — the expert continued. Shantsev became Governor of the Nizhny Novgorod region by coincidence, during another attempt to weaken the team, Yuri Luzhkov. Then, Shantsev was Vice-mayor of Moscow. As a result, his honor sent to govern Nizhny Novgorod oblast. As we can see in Governor Valery Shantsev has experienced much in his post Luzhkov”.
Nikitin, not particularly well-known at the Federal level politician, said Chizhov. “It’s hard to predict what it’s gonna be a Governor and how he will build relations, — said the expert. — I think the potential he has. The chances are quite high that those around him will fall the normal regional elite”.
He supported the trend of updating of shots. “Obviously, with Aman Tuleyev (Kemerovo region Governor since 1997. — “MK”) yet nothing happened. He managed to defend himself in the Governor’s office. Although, it is unknown for how long. Especially because he has some health problems, — said Chizhov. — The Governor of the Belgorod region Yevgeny Savchenko also has immunity. Otherwise, those who are many years at their posts for the most part will be replaced”.
