These were the priority of national projects, the protection of citizens' rights, the creation of a more uncomplicated and more open dialogue between party structures and people, the introduction of personal responsibility of members of the General Council for the implementation of the most important tasks for the party.
It is necessary to inform citizens about the implementation of national projects more actively and at different levels. Dmitry Medvedev, the chairman of United Russia, Prime Minister of the RF, stated this speaking at the plenary session of the party conference of United Russia. According to him, today, the awareness level of what is happening in the field of national projects is insufficient. He supported the idea of creating a party service “National Projects through the Eyes of People” for feedback from citizens.
“Unfortunately, the awareness level of what is happening is deficient. And here I see our common problem. It is a problem of the executive branch; it is a problem of the deputies, it is to a large extent the problem of the whole Party”, marked Dmitry Medvedev.
