MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev’s Public Committee of Supporters officially launched the “big government” website on Monday, October 31.

The website is a forum for discussing initiatives put forth by the leadership of the country. Former Izvestia and Kommersant Editor-in-Chief Raf Shakirov has become the new website’s editor-in-chief.

Medvedev urged his supporters earlier to think about creating a broad government that would work with all electorates, not only with that of the winning party.

“I suggest that you think about creating a broad government that will work together with the main party that can form such a government - with United Russia - along with civil society, voters who are ready to vote for us, and even those who disagree with us,” Medvedev said.

“The more I work in the system of public administration, the more I understand how imperfect it is. We need to think how we can change this system and carry out reforms without dramas but calmly, persistently and firmly,” he said.

Medvedev also supported the suggestion to create a public committee that will generate ideas for a broad government in Russia.

“As far as I understand, the idea of broad government meets no resentment here,” he said.

In his opinion, a broad government should be an expanded version of the main government. “We may in fact think about creating such a committee, and if you wish to participate, I invite you to join in, and we will create it,” the president said.

Medvedev said that the next government in Russia should consist of new people.

“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,” he said.

“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.

Medvedev also called for creating a broad government that would work with all electorates, not only with that of the winning party.

“I suggest that you think about creating a broad government that will work together with the main party that can form such a government - with United Russia - along with civil society, voters who are ready to vote for us, and even those who disagree with us,” Medvedev said.

“The more I work in the system of public administration, the more I understand how imperfect it is. We need to think how we can change this system and carry out reforms without dramas but calmly, persistently and firmly,” he said.

In order to join the “big government” a website visitor has to register by stating his name, family name, city, and e-mail address.
