The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has commented Dmitry Medvedev's proposal concerning the return to elections of the regional governors.

"It is clear that I support Dmitry Medvedev's idea to return to direct elections of the regional governors. The main aim of the authority is working for people, so it looks natural that people choose those, whom they trust most of all.
