AISI and “dissenting opinion” presented the report “a Single day of voting. Update” on the status of the Governor’s election campaigns and the elections on 10 September, RBC.
One of the key findings of the report is that the governors, despite the difference in age and backgrounds, speak the same political language.
One of its most striking traits was a tendency to create memes, vivid images and random jokes. “These images are clearly marked intentions of the new governors and reflect their view of the world”, — the report says.
The head of the Mari El Republic Alexander Evstifeev cosmonautics Day said at a meeting of the Republican government that “from space, we have only debts,” and the Governor of the Kaliningrad region Anton Alikhanov promised to make Kaliningrad a “candy world scale”, experts remind.
In the slogans of the campaigns of the governors were present, the words “dialogue” and “together” in the interview, they talked about the need for “compromise” and “consensus”, the authors of the study. In their opinion, it is a signal that regional elites will have to sacrifice some of their interests if they are contrary to the development objectives.
Thus, the key features of the 11 new governors of the experts called “dialogue with society, the use of modern communication technology and management and request for change”, writes the newspaper “Vedomosti” with reference to the report.
One of the most successful in the use of modern technologies, the authors called the head of the Perm edge Maxim Reshetnikov, who have implemented the portal “Manage along” similar to Moscow’s “Active citizen”.
