New Term for Kadyrov

President Dmitry Medvedev has named his picks to head four regions, including Chechnya, for which he nominated the incumbent Ramzan Kadyrov, Interfax reported Monday.

Medvedev also proposed Viktor Il-yukhin to head the Kamchatka region, Rashid Temrezov for the Karachayevo-Cherkessia republic and Sergei Morozov for the Ulyanovsk region, the report said.

Ilyukhin and Temrezov are acting heads of their regions, and Morozov is incumbent leader of the Ulyanovsk region.

Local legislatures now have to confirm the presidential nominees.
