The Russian government has been actively preparing for the presidential elections 2018. If you believe the media, some of the staff Dmitry Medvedev is looking for further employment — someone I’m not sure that the Prime Minister retain his post, and someone looking for a quieter job.
Unnamed sources “Newspapers.ru” they say that their future is not connected with the work in the government Deputy Prime Ministers Olga Golodets and Arkady Dvorkovich and the Ministers of labour Maxim Topilin and health Veronika Skvortsova. Meanwhile, Medvedev’s press Secretary Natalya Timakova unequivocally denied the job search staff. “I sincerely assure you that your sources lie to you. I wonder what is the purpose?” she said.
The unknown and the future prospects of Medvedev. The sources allow an option in which it will retain the Premiership. One of them said that Medvedev is still in the list of the head of state as the applicant for this post — although the background information attacks against him. In the case of the election victory of Vladimir Putin to keep Medvedev Prime Minister in order not to add any power group.
If you need another Prime Minister, you have two choices. The first Cabinet headed by a political “heavyweight”. With reference to its sources “Newspaper.ru” calls as such, Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, the first Deputy head of presidential administration Sergey Kiriyenko and presidential aide Andrei Belousov.
However, this option is not mandatory — if to consider given the Kremlin’s trend of personnel rejuvenation, the new Prime Minister might not be from the old guard. Sources do not rule out the appointment of the Prime Minister the head of the Ministry Maxim Oreshkin, or even the head of Sberbank German Gref. In the “short list” publications of potential candidates also appear in the premiere, the mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin, head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina and Prime Minister Vyacheslav Volodin.
