Experts: the restoration of United Russia is not PR, but systemic policy

Majority faction has been seriously renewed, including with the help of public officials

The first plenary session of the new convocation of the State Duma showed a tendency to renew the factions of all parties. Of particular note is “ United Russia & # 39; & # 39 ;, in which 48.5% of deputies were elected to the State Duma for the first time. According to experts, it is this course of adaptability and development that is & nbsp; the main competitive feature of the ruling party. It turns out that for her – these are not empty promises, but a real personnel policy. At the same time, when you look at the lists of leadership committees of the State Duma, it is quite successful.


In the new convocation, three of the 17 committees led by United Russia have new faces: health protection (Dmitry Khubezov), ecology, natural resources and environmental protection (Dmitry Kobylkin) and youth policy (Artem Metelev). In addition, newcomers to politics became the first vice-chairs of the other five committees and vice-chairs of nine.

“I am convinced that the representative is the same public official, only he has additional powers and resources that need to be directed where they will be most useful to society and the people.” Mutual assistance and support is a strength of our society and the pandemic has confirmed this again.

Good doesn't matter what your social status, national or political color is. It is important to strive to make this world a better place through your own approach to the work entrusted to you. I am glad that there are many high-level professionals, my comrades and colleagues, among my fellow Members in this call. This will enable a more effective and comprehensive approach to solving various problems, “said Igor Kastyukevich, Head of the ONF Youth and now First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Youth Policy Committee (United Russia).

According to Dmitry Orlov, Director General of the Agency for Political and Economic Communications, United Russia is traditionally, regularly and significantly updated – both during elections at all levels and during the primaries. The reason is the public demand and the party's desire to improve the efficiency of the structure and activities and the need to remain competitive in the political market.

“There was a significant renewal of the composition of the State Duma and this trend was mainly due to the faction of a united Russia … 48.5% of MPs from the majority party was not part of the State Duma of the previous convocation, while in the Communist Party faction, for example Liberal Democratic Party – 33.3%.

The renewal of the faction of the majority party took place both at the expense of managers with significant experience of working in regional offices, and thanks to personalities whose CVs were associated with socially oriented NGOs and public organizations. This trend will strengthen the interface between the regional and federal agenda in legislative work, use different approaches to control government activities and more effectively implement public demand for proactive social policy, “commented the updated composition of the Orlov faction.

“Only dynamic, evolving structures can be stable and successful now and in the future.” Adaptability and development will be the parties' main competitive advantages both between the elections and during the federal supercycle. Renewal is one of the main tools for developing these qualities and competencies. The fact that so many newly elected members of United Russia have taken the lead suggests that party renewal is a systemic policy, not a pre-election PR with ritual incantations and decorative decisions.

It is extremely important that the new political faces that emerged in the campaign took an active part in the debates, in fact becoming the party's frontmen in this election. I am thinking first of all of Dmitri Khubezov, Anna Kuznetsova, Tatiana Butska and Artem Metelev. They are personally responding to the voters' request for renewal and their public position will increase confidence in parliament, “added Konstantin Kostin, Chairman of the Board of the Civil Society Development Fund.
