Russia And Future? Putin-Medvedev Tandem To Rule After 2012

Posted by Info on 22/03/2010

President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will continue ruling Russia in a tandem after 2012, when Medvedev’s first presidential term expires, State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov said Friday:
There can’t be any contradictions in the Medvedev-Putin tandem by default. That is why they will work in this tandem after 2012.”

Gryzlov was responding to some of the more than 3,000 angry questions and caustic remarks about himself and United Russia that had been submitted by readers over the course of a week. Gryzlov dismissed suggestions that bureaucrats had forced citizens to vote for United Russia or had bought their votes during regional elections on March 14.

Gryzlov praised United Russia — which is routinely accused of stifling any dissent — for “creating real powers” out of the Communist, Liberal Democratic and Just Russia parties — the only parties other than United Russia that have seats in the Duma.

We live in a beautiful state,”
Gryzlov said as he concluded the interview.
