EastRussia Bulletin: in the Irkutsk region, an important change in the structure of the executive branch

It was decided to divide the posts of the governor and the chairman of the government: corresponding changes in the structure of the regional government should occur in the second half of the year, writes the Bulletin of EastRussia.

Often the division of these posts is used in the regions to create political alliances between the governor and certain influence groups, whose representative becomes the regional prime minister. Given the complex structure of the regional elite and the presence of many FIGs in the region's economy, such tactics may prove to be beneficial for the Irkutsk governor ahead of the upcoming elections in 2017 (unless the elections are early). In the meantime, it is said that S. Eroschenko plans to focus on issues of strategic development of the region, and operational management to hand over to the future head of government. Simultaneously, a new head of the governor's office was appointed - former deputy minister of labor and employment of the region Maxim Avdeev. The deputy of M.Avdeev became the head of the press service department of the Government of the Angara region Irina Lenshina.
