MOSCOW, November 14, 13:22 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Ministry of Labor and Social Protection (Mintrud) has approved its Public Council membership, the ministry’s press service reported on Thursday.
“We are committed to active constructive work and intend to hold the first meeting of the Council in two weeks, in late November,” the press service quotes Minister of Labor and Social Protection Maksim Topilin. He noted that in the consultations it was decided to increase the earlier announced number of the Council members from 30 to 33, which was done for balancing the positions of representatives of reference groups.
According to the minister, Mintrud intends to continue cooperation also with the candidates that have not joined the final team. “For us it’s a real reference base that has proved its interest. We intend to attract the most active candidates both inline and in person,” Topilin said. “Also, the Council’s reserve may be formed from them for the future rotation.”
The Council is composed of the approved by experts “internet leaders” identified in public voting and representatives of authoritative organisations - the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia, Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, Expert Council under the RF government, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives for the promotion of new projects, All-Russian Public Opinion Research Centre, NGOs of WW2 veterans, disabled persons, children’s protection and scientific organisations.
