MOSCOW, February 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The system of the Big Government may feature former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, representatives of the non-systemic opposition if they are qualified experts, Russia’s Presidential Aide Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters on Friday following the first meeting of the working group on formation of the Big Government system.
“We shall be inviting experts – and it does not matter whether the expert is a man or woman, a communist or a liberal democrat,” Dvorkovich said. He did not rule out that “representatives of the non-system opposition may join the Big Government if they are experts.”
He named as an example a deputy Oksana Dmitriyeva, who is a recognised expert in social policy.
“Nobody will force anybody,” Dvorkovich stressed. Reporters asked him if former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin is a potential expert, and Dvorkovich replied saying: “If Kudrin wants to see our groundwork, we shall be happy.”
