ST. PETERSBURG, December 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has once again urged Russians to take part in the State Duma election on December 4.
“It is necessary to vote,” he said while visiting the Baltiysky Plant on Friday. “I have heard various opinions and appeals for not voting. However, such appeals are made by those who stick to the principle ‘the worse the better’. It will be better for people who like to fish in troubled water and worse for average citizens. All mechanisms of the state machinery must work smoothly in order the state machinery operates duly. If either mechanism fail, the entire system fails,” Putin said.
If citizens want to watch “parliamentarians beating each other and tugging each other on hair, as it happens in some neighbor states, there will be no normal work. Those who want to see a show should go to the circus, the movies or the theater,” he said.
There is a need for new apt people, Putin said. People in regions are politically active and grasp the essence of problems, he said. “When down-to-earth people face the reality, their reaction is swift and they know quickly what must be done,” he said. “It is easier to communicate and work with such people.”
“One should take part in the voting and make a decision,” he said.
