Politicians really need to meet more with the citizens whose interests they represent, TV presenter Yevgeny Popov said, supporting the words of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said during a video conference with the leadership of United Russia and participants in the United Russia primaries.
Popov believes that it is important for politicians to communicate directly with citizens. “I was convinced of this from my own experience: since February, about 250 personal meetings with residents of the Western Administrative District of Moscow have taken place. I would have spent a thousand, but there are only 24 hours in a day. We already have more than 500 requests in our work. Only yesterday I left Filevsky Park with eight appeals from Muscovites, ”said the TV presenter, who recently announced his intention to run for the State Duma from United Russia. He won the EP primaries in the Kuntsevo single-mandate constituency, receiving the support of more than 17 thousand people.
According to Popov, this United Russia is capable of solving real problems of citizens and listens to different points of view. “We must pay tribute – the party is ready to change, work with people, hear and take responsibility for its words and deeds,” Popov believes, according to whom, in his opinion, politics in the Russian Federation needs humanization, simple communications between the government and the population.
