The work of discussion platforms “United Russia” will be brought into line with the fundamental values of the party, said the Deputy Secretary General Council of United Russia Yevgeny Revenko, reports RIA Novosti.

Such values, according to Revenko, are human well-being, leadership and development, unity and sovereignty.

“There is a proposal to reformat the work of four discussion platforms as a major tool for communication with civil society, the party and bring their work in line with the three basic ideologies of the party,” said Revenko, speaking at the XVIII Congress of the EP.

The range of topics that will be discussed at the sites is much wider. “For example, leadership and development is the development of civil society, support to NGOs, people’s quality of life. Human well-being, social policy, environment, sports development, health and education. The unity and sovereignty is not only a Patriotic agenda, as well as topics of inter-ethnic relations, history, unity of the country,” said Revenko.

The Secretary of Irkutsk branch of United Russia Sergey Sokol proposed to merge the work of discussion platforms into a single platform. According to Revenko, this will allow the parties to effectively discuss the most pressing and urgent issues in the regions.

According to the results of the Single voting day on 9 September, “United Russia” has retained control in regional parliaments and municipal councils. Despite pension reform, the ruling party received in the aggregate approximately 60 percent of the mandates in the elections.
