Medvedev proposes Putin for president in 2012
Russian president Dmitry Medvedev says Putin should run in 2012
By The Associated Press

MOSCOW (AP) ' Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has proposed Vladimir Putin as presidential candidate for 2012, almost certainly guaranteeing Putin's return to office.

Medvedev made the proposal Saturday in an address to a congress of United Russia, the pro-Kremlin party that dominates Russian politics.

There was no immediate official reaction from Putin or the party, but the proposal brought a heavy round of applause from the congress delegates.

The proposal appears to end months of intense speculation over whether Medvedev would seek a second term or step aside for his powerful predecessor.
