Putin Eyes Prime Minister's Job
Russian President, Vladimir Putin has raised the possibility of becoming a future prime minister by agreeing to enter the December parliamentary polls. Mr. Putin, who must leave office as president next year, said suggestions he might seek to become Russian prime minister were entirely realistic. He said he accepted the proposal by the United Russia to head the party's list, without becoming a member. By being on the list he is guaranteed a seat in the next parliament.
