Medvedev Wins Russian Election

Headline: Putin's Pick Medvedev Wins in Russia

In an election with hints of close ties with the Kremlin, current Russian President Vladimir Putin's personal pick, Dmitri Medvedev, has won the presidency. Though Medvedev's success was never in doubt, Russia's new president has never held elected office before and was most recently an aide to Mr. Putin.

Putin plans to serve as Medvedev’s prime minister and is indicating that he will broaden the responsibilities of that position. Since the Soviet Union’s fall, the position of prime minister has been mostly administrative.

Medvedev's stance toward the West appears less adversarial than Putin's, and some say his ability to advance this platform upon taking office will be an important indicator of whether Putin is allowing him to be more than a figurehead.
