The Kremlin will extend the powers of Boris Titov, the commissioner for the protection of the rights of entrepreneurs, whose second term in office ends on June 22. About this “Vedomosti” four sources said: one close to the leadership of the State Duma, two close to the office of the ombudsman, as well as an interlocutor in one of the business associations.

“After Titov there will be Titov”,— told Vedomosti a source close to the leadership of the State Duma. At the same time, under the current law, the business ombudsman has the right to hold office for no more than two consecutive terms. Titov, who has been in office since 2012, has reached this limit.

According to one of the interlocutors of the publication, Titov's powers can be extended for one year, according to another— for a total of two years. It is also planned to remove the two-term limit from the law, a newspaper source in one of the business associations said.

Lawyer Anton Timchenko considers it logical that the powers will be extended for one year, since Titov began work as ombudsman in 2012 -m, and the two-term limitation law came into force in 2013.

Among the candidates who could replace Titov in the event of his departure, a source close to the State Duma called “Vedomosti” Chairman of the Board of Directors of R-Pharma; and the current head of “Business Russia” Alexey Repik.

The Ombudsman himself said earlier that he intended to leave his post after the second term. “My position remains the same: you can’t stay, grow to the place, you can’t do the same thing for more than two terms,” — he said in May 2021, speaking at the All-Russian Conference of Commissioners for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs.
