Kommersant’s sources say that staff of public support in this campaign will not.
The campaign headquarters of Vladimir Putin, who yesterday announced the nomination for election by the officer and not a famous person. On Thursday said the special representative of the RF President on the issues of environmental activities, environment and transport, the former head of the presidential administration Sergei Ivanov. However, he noted that he would not name names because he did not know. To speak on this subject refused and curator of the political block of the Kremlin Sergey Kiriyenko, referring to the fact that he doesn’t know that.
Moreover, the PA “b” explained that while not created by the staff, not appointed, and his boss.
At once two sources “” close to the AP, saying it can only be two people — either the head of the presidential administration Anton Vaino, or Sergei Kiriyenko. Thus, according to one of them, discussed that the headquarters will also be the curators of several areas — for example, an economist, a specialist in the development of the civil sector.
In 2012, when Vladimir Putin was elected for his third term, his staff was headed by Director Stanislav Govorukhin.
One member of staff recalls that his candidature was proposed by Vyacheslav Volodin, the first Deputy head of the AP Vladislav Surkov was in charge of the election campaign “United Russia” in the Duma of the sixth convocation, and after his appointment in December 2011 the first Deputy head of the AP became the unofficial head of the presidential staff. “Govorukhin — the national Director and as a politician Teflon brand, it do not stick, even if he were photographed with women and alcohol. In addition, he was part of onf on the basis of which was formed the headquarters of public support for the President”, — said the interlocutor of Kommersant.
This time from the headquarters of public support, decided to withdraw, said the source “b”. As wrote “Kommersant” on 7 December, will be an initiative group that will nominate Vladimir Putin as a candidate (no less than 500 people), it will include representatives of various social groups and environments, and party members and members of the Central headquarters of the popular front. The President of Fund “the Petersburg policy” Michael Vinogradov says that “the headquarters of public support in 2012 was not technologically necessary, but Stanislav Govorukhin was a symbol of a conservative turn, and now this rotation is not promised”.
Political analyst Gleb Pavlovsky said that “by itself, the figure head of a campaign headquarters rather nominal”:
In the presidential campaign, he rather reflects the existing balance of power in the power groups.
Introduced in 2000, the figure of Dmitry Medvedev could demonstrate “the balance of power between the old and new authorities,” and the figure of Dmitry Kozak on the background of the resignation of Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov in 2004, “the support of the liberal wing”.
On the selection of a candidate as head of staff affected and the fact that it allows you to “not reveal anything about the balance of power in the future of Executive power,” says Mikhail Vinogradov. “In December 2011, for example, changed the leadership of the administration, and in September called the candidacy of Prime Minister — was more important to designate a new alignment for pain-free castling”. While Dmitry Medvedev, who headed the election headquarters of Vladimir Putin in 2000, after the election, was promoted to first Deputy head of the AP and was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors of “Gazprom”. And the first Deputy head of the AP in 2003, Dmitry Kozak, after the victory of Mr. Putin in the 2004 elections, he headed the government apparatus. In the 2012 election headquarters of Vladimir Putin in the presidential administration was appointed Pavel Zenkovich and Alexey Anisimov.
