Now the former head of Dagestan Magomedsalam Magomedov has failed to keep the office. His office, temporary yet, will be occupied by Ramazan Abdulatipov. Magomedov himself has got a new position: now he is deputy head of the Kremlin administration. Our correspondent found out the attitude of the Dagestani people to the acting head of the republic.
Everything began from a controversial interview of the State Duma deputy Ramazan Abdulatipov to the "Caucasian Politics". Abdulatipov said the following: "Last night, the order for my appointment was signed. This is not a rumor. This is an accomplished fact". Given that the rumors of the resignation of Magomedsalam Magomedov circulated for almost two weeks, it was hard to immediately believe in the news. "Caucasian Politics" also committed a mistake in the interview: Abdulatipov was speaking about the order, but about the decree. Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov immediately drew attention to this, and his comment has led to doubt in the veracity of the information on Abdulatipov's appointment. But now the controversy has subsided. Ramazan Abdulatipov was appointed interim president of
the Republic of Dagestan.
We decided to find out the attitude of the Dagestani people to the news of the appointment of Ramazan Abdulatipov as acting president of Dagestan. For this, the Big Caucasus reporter has held a small survey among the residents of the country. Here are the most interesting responses and opinions.
The Big Caucasus: "What do you think about the appointment of Ramazan Abdulatipov as the acting president of Dagestan? Do you consider Abdulatipov a political figure capable to lead the republic to the stabilization?"
Ramin Muradov, editor in chief of "Business World of Dagestan": "Speaking of Ramazan Abdulatipov, I can say only positive things about him as a true mountaineer. It will be very difficult for him to turn all the ideas and dreams of the Dagestanis into reality. Yes, he is educated man with great experience in resolving interethnic problems. I am an optimist, I hope for the best".
