Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov is to be inaugurated for his second term as the leader of the North Caucus republic on April 5, a representative of Kadyrov's administration and the republic's government said on Monday.

The Parliament of the Russian North Caucasus republic of Chechnya unanimously approved Ramzan Kadyrov as head of the republic for a second five-year term at an extraordinary session earlier this month.

"Famous figures who have made significant contributions to the stability in the region are to be invited to the [inauguration] ceremony," the spokesman said.

Kadyrov's candidacy to head the republic was submitted to the parliament by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on February 28. All 41 members of the parliament attended the session on Saturday, unanimously supporting the Russian president's proposal.

The 34-year-old leader of Chechnya told the parliament members that his main tasks as the head of the republic are the people's wealth, strengthening of human rights and justice in society.

The previous president of Chechnya, Ramzan's father Akhmad Kadyrov, was killed by a bomb explosion at a stadium in Chechnya's capital, Grozny, during a WWII commemoration victory parade on May 9, 2004.
