Putin’s Longest-Serving Minister Proposed as Moscow Region Head

March 30 (Bloomberg) -- Sergei Shoigu, who’s been Russia’s Emergency Minister since 1991, is among candidates proposed as the new head of the Moscow region.

Shoigu, 56, the longest-serving minister in the Russian government, may replace Boris Gromov, who’s held the post since January 2000 and whose third term ends in May, according to a statement today on the ruling United Russia party’s website.

United Russia has proposed two other candidates: Igor Parkhomenko, first deputy head of Moscow’s regional government, and Alexander Khodyrev, who heads the Reutov city administration. President Dmitry Medvedev must approve the final candidate.
