KHABAROVSK, November 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has called on governor of Russian regions not to turn a deaf ear to proposals on problem solutions coming from ordinary people.
Speaking at a meeting of the presidium of the Russian State Council, the president voiced support to the proposal to assess the work of regional governors according to a special assessment scale that is to be more integral. Medvedev also hailed the idea of elaborating governors’ programs of work. “Each governor, when vested with authority, must have a clear idea of what he or she is going to do, of his or her priorities,” the president said. “It is very important, otherwise it is impossible to assess the governors’ work.”
Medvedev also called on governors and local government officials to be more attentive to proposals coming from ordinary people. “It is inadmissible to lose contact with people who vested us with our authority,” he stressed.
