GORKI, February 6 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev will sign a degree on “an open government” this week.
The decree will link the “open government’s” work to the one of the regular government and will call for drafting the necessary regulatory framework.
Medvedev does not rule out that some members of the public committee might move to governmental agencies. Dmitry Rogozin and Mikhail Abyzov have already done so.
“We will continue this process of relocation,” the president said on Monday, February 6. “It is very important for modern people to come to the government.”
Medvedev stressed that the public committee of supporters should continue working after the presidential election in March in order to ensure interaction between the authorities and civil society.
“You are well known people and you should help sustain this communication,” he added.
He also called for considering an international initiative called “open government partnership” designed to ensure the interaction between the authorities and civil society and lower barriers in this field.
“It has been created at the suggestion of several countries and we should also consider this issue in order to take part in this,” Medvedev said.
