Russian government in for serious rotation: PutinJanuary 24th, 2012 - 8:31 am ICT by IANS
Moscow, Jan 24 (IANS/RIA Novosti) There will be far-reaching changes in the Russian government after the March 4 presidential election, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.
“This does not mean that everyone will have to be fired. Of course, there should be rotation, serious rotation, and there will be rotation,” Putin said Monday.
Putin is seeking to return to the Kremlin after being barred by the constitution from standing for a third consecutive term in 2008.
State-run pollster VTsIOM said last week that his support among voters has risen from 45 percent earlier this month to 52 percent.
