YEKATERINBURG, November 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has proposed to hold a national contest for "the most idiotic administrative decision".
During the meeting with representatives of small businesses and United Russia party activists, the president expressed the hope that it would help in the fight with functionaries who hamper the development of entrepreneurship activities.
"There is an idea regarding administrative regulations, various "interesting" administrative rules that hamper business development.”
“It seems to me another contest may be held in our country for the most foolish administrative regulations or the most idiotic administrative decision,” he said.
Medvedev suggested the participants in the meeting should nominate candidates from functionaries and bureaucrats for the prizes.
A contest commission may be formed for the purpose, he added.
