In Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky may return direct mayoral elections. The governor of the region, Vladimir Ilyukhin, voiced such an opportunity. In his opinion, other cities also need changes, since officials at the municipal level have ceased to feel responsibility to the residents.

As reported "Vedomosti", the head of the region decided to compare the experience of cities where direct elections and the results of the work of city managers were preserved. The source of the publication claims that the leadership of the region, thus, is trying to achieve sustainable power in the capital of the region, since five mayors have been replaced there over the past eight years.

Now direct elections of mayors operate in four cities of the Far East - in Khabarovsk, Ulan-Ude, Anadyr and Yakutsk. In Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky they were canceled in the 2014 year. Experts do not exclude the possibility that if amendments are made to the regional law and the city’s charter, the mayoral election in the capital of Kamchatka may take place in September 2020.
