MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Vladimir Putin has promised that in case of his election as Russia’s president in March 2012 he will make the authorities accountable to society.
“All government and municipal services will be provided to the people in keeping with the established standards. The maximum amount of services will be available in electronic form. We shall facilitate the procedure of considering citizens’ claims against the state and create administrative courts for that purpose,” Putin said in his election platform published on the website www.putin2012.ru.
Russia’s current prime minister has promised that “there will be created real mechanisms of public control of the authorities’ activity in the most sensitive and corruption-risky and ineffective spheres – government purchases, road construction, the housing and utilities sector and law enforcement.”
“We should reconsider the entire system of protecting public interests and put an end to its excessive repressive bias – this sort of situation deforms our society and makes it morally unhealthy,” Putin said.
He touched upon the activity of the law enforcement sphere.
“It must be geared to protecting and supporting legal enterprise, and not to fighting it,” he said. “It is necessary to reduce the sphere of applying such sanctions as preliminary custody and punishment with imprisonment for minor offences.”
