Russian govt structure remains unchanged: Medvedev
Moscow: Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the structure of country` new government has remained virtually unchanged to keep up the pace, otherwise the Cabinet of Ministers would have needed a long time to get down to business, RIA Novosti reported.
"Any, even the most perfect structure that involves changes, needs a year to become functional," the Russian Prime Minister said on Tuesday.
"No government has that year - we have to keep on ticking, deal with current tasks and implement reforms that are overdue in the economic and social spheres," he added.
On May 08, Russia`s new President Vladimir Putin in a decree appointed Medvedev as the country`s new prime minister, within an hour of Russia`s State Duma, or lower house of Parliament approving his nomination.
Lawmakers voted 299-144 for Medvedev`s appointment. He was backed by two of the four Duma factions, the United Russia and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia.
