The head of Ufa administration Irek Yalalov holds the second line in the media-rating of town governors in Volga federal district in 2012. His media index is equal to 577,11. This information was published by the company “Medialogy” today.

Oleg Kondrashov (Nizhniy Novgorod-the first place, 3411,08) and Anatoly Makhovikov (Perm, the third place, 396,46) also became the leaders of the rating.

“Medialogy” reports that Irek Yalalov occupies this post during just one year – he was elected the Mayor of Ufa in January 2012. Nonetheless for this short period of time he managed to win high rating positions among his colleagues. The Mayor of Ufa started to attract public attention after he had come to meet with the starving shareholders, holding a protest action. After a talk with the head of Ufa administration the hunger strike was stopped. The town authorities took the obligation to solve their problem on themselves. Besides, international BRICS and SCO summits will take place in Ufa in 2015 and in this connection Irek Yalalov holds regular meetings with journalists and in the course of one of such press conferences he has stated that construction of modern hotels is considered one of the important steps in preparations for these forums.

The head of Perm Igor Sapko has negative media index – minus 108,27. The trip of Perm delegation, headed by Igor Sapko, to Sicily was negatively estimated by mass-media. According to the instructions, signed by Sapko, the delegation was in Sicily on business for taking part in the festival “The Week of Russia in Sicily”. Public community demands from the deputies to report back the expenses for their trip to Italy.

The rating is built on the base of “Medialogy” mass-media database, including about 10700 most influential sources: TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, news agencies and online mass-media. The investigation was conducted within the period between January-December 2012.

Media index is the index of qualitative state of the informational environment, formed by mass-media around a VIP-person, a company or a brand. The higher the media-index is, the more positive is the presence of this person in mass-media and the more the image of this person, which is formed by mass-media, looks positive.
