The governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sergei Furgal, called for the return of direct elections of the heads of municipalities. In his opinion, they should be elected by the inhabitants.

As the REGNUM, Furgal believes that the heads of municipalities should be held accountable to their inhabitants along with the deputies. Now, according to the governor, it turns out to be illogical: the deputies elect the head of the local administration, but he does not feel that he was elected by the people. Therefore, it is not always clear, but the people themselves would choose this candidate. Such a leader will not be able to do anything, even if he really wants to.

Furgal also cautioned election commissions against attempts to hinder the work of the media in the September 8 elections.
