“Some heads of our municipalities took their offices, work and think it’s there forever and they’ll even have some places left for their kids. […] Some think there’s nobody else in the area but themselves,” said the head of the region.
According to him, the system needs to change so that every official would realize there is another candidate on his position who is “breathing down his neck.”
He ordered Alexei Panin, acting head of the governor’s staff, head of the Penza region gubernatorial operation office, to complete the work in this direction within a month.
“Do prepare it – there are people, there are young men and women who want to get jobs and work hard,” Ivan Belozertsev stressed.
