MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, leader of the United Russia party on Tuesday has called for purging the party ranks of violators of the ethical, legal and party norms.
“Those whom we delegated to power should not lack self-criticism, and naturally it is necessary to purge the party ranks of those who violate the party rules, ethical and especially law norms,” Medvedev said at an enlarged meeting of the Supreme and General Councils of United Russia.
He said there are various reasons for becoming a party member and that people think of their career within the party development context. “But there must be something more important than just the career — and service to the nation is more important,” Medvedev said.
In this connection, the prime minister proposed to step up public control over the party members who hold managerial positions.
