Yakut journalist Vitaly Obedin filed with the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office an application for the Commissioner for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs under the President of the Russian Federation Boris Titov. According to the journalist, the ombudsman abuses his official authority, refusing to agree on the candidacy of Irina Kotenko, who twice won the election in Yakutia, for the post of regional representative.

According to Obedin, Titov “shoved” into the federal law on commissioners a clause on which all regional ombudsmen should agree personally with him. In Yakutia, the election of ombudsmen for the rights of entrepreneurs. At the last, Irina Kotenko won, with a double margin of votes. Titov rejected her candidacy twice. As an argument, the ombudsman cited complaints from Yakutia, which, according to journalist Obedin, no one saw, their authenticity was not checked.

Rejecting Kotenko’s candidature, Titov sent letters to the federal offices of Opora Rossii, Delovaya Rossiya, the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs with a proposal to nominate a new candidate for the post of commissioner. By law, only the head of the region can do this. Also, according to the journalist, Titov proposed to ban those candidates who had already been nominated to ban elections.

As the journalist reported on his Facebook page, he does not hope to institute criminal proceedings against Titot for exceeding his official authority. To draw attention to the situation, in his opinion, there will be enough presentation.
