MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The government should delegate some of its functions to people and make many sectors self-regulating, President Dmitry Medvedev said.
“The most challenging task is to find the right balance in a situation where the authorities must have authority rather than go flaccid, and all public forces could participate in the development of the country,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his supporters on Saturday, October 15.
“All government officials must understand that not all things can be managed effectively and share some of their functions. People should be allowed to assume some of the duties. Then we will become a modern state,” the president said.
“There are areas which the state must control, but there are many more areas that should be regulated in other ways, including in the way of self-regulation,” he said.
Medvedev believes that the government should seek to decentralise itself.
The next government in Russia should consist of new people, President Dmitry Medvedev said.
“If we succeed in carrying out the political programme, be sure that the broad government we are talking about and the actual one will consist of absolutely new people,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his supporters on Saturday, October 15.
“I think our country needs that badly,” he added.
Medvedev said he would get rid of officials who do not hear the people. “Social networks and the Internet as a whole provide a channel for feedback that everyone should use – ordinary people and the authorities,” the president said.
“I am telling your frankly: as long as work and I am active, I will get rid of people who can’t work in such circumstances, even if these are distinguished people,” he said.
