Acting Governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako called the decision to participate in elections of the head of the region a difficult step, but expressed their willingness to fight for this post.

«A difficult step. Scary-not scary, but you need to do need to work,» Kozhemyako said in an interview to the program «Vesti on Saturday» channel «Russia-1».

However, the acting Governor believes that it will be easier to participate in elections than his competitors, because he knows the people and their native region.

«Always a choice — it is a competition. This struggle, the result of which is determined by the residents. Which candidate is the most clear, close, for they will vote. Therefore, it is never frightened. I will be a little easier due to the fact that after all the region is familiar to me. And I find it easier to talk to people», — said Kozhemyako.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday appointed head of the Sakhalin oblast Oleg Kozhemyako, the acting Governor of Primorye after he accepted the resignation of his predecessor Andriy Tarasenko, who retired from the post after the failed second round of elections of the head region. It is already known that Kozhemyako will go to the forthcoming elections as an independent candidate.
