MOSCOW, February 6. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister and head of the United Russia party Dmitry Medvedev suggested changing for new persons every third top official at the party.
"Last year, we did not have a congress, nor did we have rotations at the General Council, thus I suggest this year bringing in new officials - every third top official," he told the party’s congress on Saturday.
The party leader said the party had been paying "much attention to the obligatory rotation of top officials."
"There is hurting or fearful here. New people always favor the tasks: new people are bringing new fresh ideas, new views on settling problems," he said.
The prime minister said the party’s charter contained an approach, where annually 15% of top officials are replaced.
"This norm was introduced not by chance: we are not the CPSU (Communist Party of the Soviet Union, where top officials kept their positions for decades)," he said.
Medvedev said if the approach is observed, the party management changed completely within six years.
"Thus, the party management has new people all the time, and at the same time we are observing the succession, which is absolutely necessary for effective management of the big party mechanism," Medvedev said.
The Russian government does not expect a major growth of the unemployment in Russia, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said addressing congress of the United Russia party on Saturday.
The regions, where the employment situation was complicated, received state support last year, he said.
"In the budget, we have reserved necessary funds for this year, too," the prime minister said. "We shall continue support of the kind. In some regions, by the way, the government will finance immediately programs to support employment. Generally, we do not expect a major growth of the unemployment. But for this we all should be working maximum energetically.".
