Andrei Kislov’s place in the Samara Provincial Duma may be taken by his successor at Gazprom Smirnov

The All-Russian political party “United Russia” summed up the results of the 2022 primaries. According to official data, a record number of voters registered to participate in the preliminary voting – 12% of the total number. On the Single Voting Day, which this time will last for three, from September 9 to 11, 43 election campaigns for the elections of deputies of the regional and local levels will finish in 34 regions of the country.

The Samara region is waiting for full-fledged elections of the district council of the Industrial District of Samara and five additional ones at once to replenish the deputy corps due to the fact that the deputies dropped out of it for one reason or another. By-elections will be held in three inner-city districts of Samara and in Smyshlyaevka, but the main interest is the campaign for the Samara provincial Duma in the fourteenth Krasnoyarsk district.

For many years, with the exception of the very first convocation, Andrey Kislov represented the territory in the regional parliament. A native of the local corporation Volgapromgaz, for 18 years he was in charge of Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Samara, a structural subdivision of the federal gas holding. Having been elected to the Gubernia Duma in the sixth row in a row, Kislov was delegated to the Federation Council instead of Sergei Mamedov, who had gone to the Accounts Chamber of Russia, and the district was left without a representative.

Now Kislov’s seat in the provincial duma will be up for grabs by his successor as head of Gazprom’s regional division, Mikhail Smirnov, a 40-year-old native of St. Petersburg, who won the internal party preliminary vote by a wide margin. The names of Smirnov’s four competitors say little to the general public.

According to local media, Vasily Vorobyov, the current deputy of the Togliatti City Duma, can compete with Smirnov from the Communist Party.
