The head of Yakutia, Egor Borisov, early resigned

The head of Yakutia, Yegor Borisov, resigned early. According to the Kremlin press service, Borisov said this at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The politician decided to resign from himself to re-elect a new term as head of the region.

“I understand, four years of work as the President of the Republic, the responsibility that is entrusted to me is very high, I also understand that. But today the political system of the Russian Federation is improving, and there are certain requirements of voters, the population, including the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), that the head of the subject is more effective, more responsible, and empowered at the will of the voters. Obtaining a vote of confidence from the population would, of course, be much more effective for the head of the subject, in particular the head of the Republic. Therefore, today I would like to appeal to you with a request, within the framework of this situation, taking into account the interests of the Russian Federation and the interests of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), to ask you for permission to go to early elections in September this year. "

Putin agreed with this decision. The head of state added that he would soon sign a decree appointing Egor Borisov as acting head of Yakutia.

“There are still many problems in the republic, but during your work you have done a lot, progress is obvious,” Putin said.
