After re-election for mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin will not conduct any significant changes in the Moscow government, as his team showed efficient work during his previous term, however, personnel rotation is possible at the level of city councils and municipalities, according to respondents RIA Novosti experts.

The mayoral elections were held in the capital on September 9. According to the Moscow city election Commission, after processing 100% of protocols, the turnout was 30.96%. The incumbent mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, typing 70,17% of the vote. In second place from 11.38% of the vote — the former Deputy of the state Duma Vadim Cumin, nominated by the Communist party. From 7.01% of the votes third place went to the head of the municipal district Taganskaya Ilya Sviridov. State Duma Deputy Mikhail Degtyarev from the liberal democratic party took fourth place with 6,72%, and the former owner of SU-155, the candidate from the party «Union of citizens» Michael Balakina supported by 1.87% of the voters. Powers of the acting mayor expires in September.

Deputies will not go away

Personnel changes after the re-election of the mayor will be «mandatory», but they will not affect government Ministers and Vice-mayor, said the General Director of the Center for political information Alexei Mukhin. He explained that after any election there is a rotation of personnel, but not necessarily in scale, «with a fine tip on the fulfillment of election promises.»

«Personnel changes are constant. Sergei Sobyanin are careful to officials at various levels was effective. Of course, the rotation will be. If you mean the upper echelon, that’s a great question. Sergei Sobyanin is a very consolidated team, and it (the reshuffle) is unlikely,» — said Mukhin RIA Novosti.

With this agrees the head «Political expert group», the political analyst Konstantin Kalachev. In his opinion, the Vice mayor showed his personal qualities and might leave city hall «just to improve».

«If only to increase. It is clear that, in principle, during the election campaign verified the business and personal qualities of each, because a lot depends on social well-being of Muscovites, from the background, the effectiveness of the work, how closely implementing the decisions of superiors. If you look at what was happening, where were the system failures, I have not seen this, to be honest» — he said RIA Novosti.

The results of the elections, according to Kalachev, had to prove that the command of the mayor works and is cohesive. «I believe that the mayor should be pleased with the results. This, in turn, implies that any fundamental, radical personnel decisions and permutations are not required, but there is always a turnover of staff, there is always the upgrade, the opportunity for career growth,» he said.

Where changes are needed?

In the city, according to Mukhin, there are two problems, one of which relates to management companies in housing and communal services. «Here the administration needs to act a lot tougher than it acts, because the abuse from them is perceived by the population extremely sensitive. This is a problem because it increases social tension,» — he explained.

The expert also pointed out the problem with the interaction of the municipality with the citizens regarding the work of the subordinate authorities. «The fact that we have such a mechanism, when the citizens appeal to the mayor, for example, complaining of the Moscow officials at the municipal level, a municipality lowers the complaints that the officials of the Council. It is a vicious circle, Muscovites displeased,» said the analyst.

Although radical personnel decisions, the Moscow government is not needed, according to Konstantin Kalachev, changes are possible on the line of control. «It is clear that the desired insights first and foremost in the heads of councils may be in relation to some structural subdivisions of the Moscow government», — he said.
