Valentina Matviyenko sent to President Vladimir Putin a letter asking for early resignation and for his considering the matter of confidence in her
St. Petersburg Governor Valentina Matviyenko sent to President Vladimir Putin a letter asking for early resignation and for his considering the matter of confidence in her. Matviyenko’s press service said she had acted in keeping with a federal law on the principles of organisation of legislative and executive power in Russia’s regions. Under Russian laws, the chief executive in a region may raise the question of his/her credibility and early resignation ahead of time. The head of state has seven days to make the decision and if he confirms his confidence in the governor, he then submits his candidature to the legislative body of the respective region for confirmation. Matviyenko has been holding the office of governor since October 2003. During her three years in office, the city has become better groomed, and major companies, including foreign businesses, have started projects in St. Petersburg. Matviyenko said earlier she would ask the president for extending her governorship for a second term only if she felt support of the citizens. “As governor, I must feel the mood of the city with my fingertips,” she said. Matviyenko’s appeal to the president was initiated by his representative to the North-Western Federal District, Ilya Klebanov. “Having analysed the main political events to take place in 2007 – elections to the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg, elections to the State Duma of Russia in December – and assessed current tasks facing the administration of St. Petersburg, the degree of readiness of the city budget for 2007, the plenipotentiary representative suggested that Valentina Matviyenko do this now,” Klebanov’s press service said. It said the move had been taken “due to the need to maintain political stability and continuity of power in St. Petersburg.”
