The work of Dmitry Artyukhov as governor and the performance he achieved became a decisive factor for nomination for a second term. According to political analysts interviewed by URA.RU, Artyukhov’s report to President Vladimir Putin on April 25 was not so much a report as a plan for the next five years.
“Artyukhov has very good performance. He managed to show himself during this time as a good leader of the region. A whole range of issues that were resolved by the government and the governor, of course, give grounds for his reappointment, ”said Yevgeny Zabrodin, member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, political scientist.
The expert expressed confidence that Artyukhov is the best option among those who could be at the head of the region today. Zabrodin’s colleague, political scientist Stanislav Deineko, clarified that working within the range of one cycle of powers does not always make it possible to fully implement all plans.
“This is a very important political event that Artyukhov, as the head of the region, told the president about the development of the YaNAO and future plans. The course chosen by the region is supported by the federal authorities,” the agency’s interlocutor said, explaining why the governor and his team still need to work on Yamal.
The political scientist clarified: the practice of the so-called “political blessing” has always existed in the modern politics of the country, and when the elections of the heads of regions begin, the attention from the country’s leadership increases the chances and gives a clear signal to the local elites.
Earlier it was reported that the President of Russia supported Artyukhov’s decision to run for a second term in the indirect elections of the head of the region. Putin announced this on April 25 at a report held in connection with the expiration of his term of office.
