Not a stir, but stability
22.06.2012 00:00Heavy domestic political life, apparently, has aaccustomed us to adrenalin euphoria - we always strive for new acute events. The opportunity daily to comment current situation in the Internet, albeit under a pseudonym, has created a new playing interest for many - so nice to cut down these damned politicians at least virtually, let them know us!
Fuel to the fire added an unexpected activity of a new parliament, rushing to investigate large deeds of previous authorities. It turned out as expected, because many important decisions are taken behind the closed doors that a lot of illegal cases had been piled up. Of course, high-ranking officials, like officials of any rank who have exceeded their powers, is necessary to call to account, but it should not become a goal of the Parliament.
There are sufficient voids in our legislation that need filling, and the main task of the Parliament is the development and adoption of necessary laws, without which the normal functioning of the public body is impossible. Excessive attention to sins of authorities sometimes resembles an attempt to settle scores, rather than to restore justice and rule of law.
When coming to power in 2005, Sergei Bagapsh proposed to start from scratch, it led to even more apathy and irresponsibility. To develop fully in such conditions could not any single people. But only to deal with investigations of abusing of power, taking actually partial functions of Prosecutor General's and spending a large part of energy is also unwise - firstly the Parliament should deal with its main work , that is lawmaking.
Generally, working and taking responsibility are not very fashionable in our state, more precisely, it is the prerogative of high fashion - all decisions are taken by the president. The rest of the power vertical is in a horizontal position, while maintaining the stance of respectful attention. That is why the popular path to the president does not overgrow, and it is weekly reported that in the reception day the president received 50-60 people.
Meanwhile, personally I voted for the head of state, who is capable - at last! - to build a properly working power structure in which every official makes decisions within his competence, well-defined and not letting him to fall into sin of official abuse.
Around the world, working hours of the head of state are considered to be very expensive, and are not used to spend on issues that his subordinates are able to solve. The president must deal with strategic issues and not wiping my tears over the fact that my phone is not working again, and a new roof leaks. No one can keep track of everything, and do not try to do it, it will bring nothing good.
Much more constructive for all of us would be a joint work of the president and the parliament on the strategic projects of development in the discussion of which the whole society took part. Then, in the country would be both the stability and unity, the loss of which is so often cried over in the public.
