BREAKING! Putin: Russia Is A Huge Country, We Have To Stay A Strong Presidential Republic!
And one more question. I am a teacher of social studies, and, as a matter of fact, we also discuss your constitutional initiative in school. In fact, you proposed to strengthen the responsibility of ministers to parliament. How do you evaluate the notion that the responsibility of the Government and ministers is to increase significantly? In fact, they are fully responsible for the economy, for the social sphere, for everything that is, in principle, important for the people. And you, in my opinion, could enter the realm of human rights and will be responsible for the country’s security and for foreign policy. That is, how do you see Russia moving to a parliamentary republic? I have already talked about this. Please seat down. A parliamentary republic in the world, this form of the state organization is widespread in many countries, especially in the European countries and is effectively applied, although there are also presidential republics. For example, the Federal Republic of Germany is a parliamentary republic, and France is a presidential republic. Different forms exist in Europe and around the world. India, one of the largest countries in the world, is a parliamentary country, and the United States is a presidential one. Is this implementation possible for us? It is theoretically possible. Is it advisable or not? Everyone has their own opinion on this matter. I believe it is not. And I will say why. In order for a parliamentary republic to function effectively, it is necessary that the political structure, firstly, mature for a long time. In Europe, for centuries, some parties have existed for centuries. And with us, as a rule, the party is connected with a specific person. The most striking example in our country is Vladimir Volfovich Zhirinovsky. There is Zhirinovsky – there is LDPR, no Zhirinovsky… The idea itself is good, liberal, but whether the party will be able to function like this without its leader is difficult to say. So, we better not experiment. There is one more thing to consider. The parliamentary form of government, which is widely used in Europe, is failing today. In some countries, despite the existence of such political infrastructure in the form of stable political parties, they cannot form a government for six months. It does not work. Imagine if Russia would be without a government for six months? A catastrophe! Believe me, this is impossible. This would mean huge damage to the state. Or in order to form a government at any cost, they agree on coalitions between those parties that set themselves completely opposite goals. The goal – the benefit of the people – is the same for everyone, but the instruments for achieving this goal are completely different. Some say that relatively speaking, it is necessary to use all types of energy, nuclear energy, including this and that, and others say that there should be no nuclear energy. And then they come together into the coalition. How will they effectively address nationwide challenges? This is just such a visible example. Many others can be cited. In reality, the very Western experts, I read sometimes about it, they themselves say that parliamentarism is going through a crisis to a certain extent. And they think about how to revive it, how to give it a new quality, how to make this system more efficient. I think for Russia with its vast territory, being also multiconfessional, with a large number of ethnicities, peoples, communities living in the country, They can’t even be counted, some say 160, some 190, we still need strong presidential power.
