Konstantin Tolkachev: “United Russia needs to abandon old approaches in working with people”

UFA, 7 December 2018. /Bashinform News Agency, Azat Gizatullin/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/. Every decision of the party, every step should be in the interests of the absolute majority of citizens of Bashkortostan and Russia. The upcoming elections in 2019 should be as transparent and fair as possible. Especially it concerns elections of the Head of the region and deputies of local governments. Konstantin Tolkachev, the Chairman of the State Assembly of Bashkiria, Secretary of the regional branch of the United Russia party, shared with Bashinform News Agency his opinion following the first day of the 18th party congress.
Recall that in 2019 in Bashkortostan, in addition to the election of the Head of the republic, more than 7,300 deputies in 777 councils of rural and urban settlements in 53 districts of the republic will be elected.
Konstantin Tolkachev spoke about the risks of the upcoming election campaign.
“The first and most significant threat of an election campaign is caused by economic instability and the “social” fears arising on this background. The second no less significant threat is the accumulating potential dissatisfaction with its place on the political agenda. This is manifested in the growing alienation of the population to election campaigns, when a voter believes that nothing depends on his/her vote”, the leader of United Russia in Bashkiria noted.
According to Konstantin Tolkachev, another risk is preservation of old approaches to the election campaign conducting, lack of understanding of new trends in politics, excessive expectations of the administrative resource.
“I consider it important to mark that today the demand of people is obvious - to ensure justice in the broad sense of the word. According to the polls already conducted, the population, as a whole, assesses the state of affairs in the republic, the economic situation and possible prospects quite positively”, noted Konstantin Tolkachev.
"We realize that we should work hard to improve the quality of political work, and we are not afraid of responsibility for our decisions," the Secretary of the United Russia the regional branch told the Bashinform News Agency.
