MOSCOW, April 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin pledged to reshuffle drastically the managerial team, including from representatives of various political forces.
“We will change drastically the managerial team,” he said in reply to the question of a State Duma deputy on possible reshuffles in the government.
“Meanwhile, this is not because people did not deserve a positive assessment to their work,” he said, explaining this by “the rules of the genre.” “Just in some trends it is very difficult to be under constant pressure,” he explained.
“In general, certainly, we will link the reshuffling policy with renovation,” Putin, who will be inaugurated as president on May 7, said. “So, this should be done from representatives of various political forces; it is important for all of us so that people will be well prepared in the professional way,” he underlined.
Putin did not agree that the incumbent government deserved only a negative assessment. “We have many problems and far from all of them are solved,” he acknowledged. “And those figures, which I cited, (the figures of economic growth) really cannot be put in the month, and it is impossible to eat them up,” he added.
However, these indexes point to the positive development, Putin said. “All of us can be proud of this, but much more is not done yet,” he said.
The prime minister gave as an example various opinions on the unified state exam. “I have many questions about the unified state exam, many corruption schemes emerged in this issue,” Putin acknowledged. “But most people praise the positive aspects of this process,” he noted, adding that thanks to this way of knowledge assessment about 70% of students from rural districts entered higher educational establishments in Siberia.
“Certainly, much should be done in terms of the reform, and the reform should be intelligent,” Putin said.
Several deputies engaged in disputes with the prime minister, claiming that the statistical reports cited by the prime minister are incorrect. “We do not cheat you, there is no deceit in it,” Putin disagreed. “The logic of political struggle gives you some reasons to say so, but it is necessary to cite real figures,” he said, assuring the deputies that his data “was checked many times.” “If the statistics is incorrect, let’s check it,” he underlined.
