Baloha: In addition to the victory on the East, we need... (5 steps)
"The high turnout, the willingness of people to vote even despite long queues, and Poroshenko's victory in the first round means one thing - people are expecting major changes" - politician Victor Baloha said on the day after the election.
In his facebook he suggests the action plan. He writes:
"And I am not talking about mere rewriting of old laws, or change of signs, but about the building of a completely new state, which will not have any features of the previous regime, from motorcades and beacons to political corruption and misappropriation of state property.
The task is not easy, but the country can do it. And for this, in addition to the victory on the East, in the nearest future, we need to lay a solid foundation in the Center. Particularly:
1. To conduct elections of the Parliament.
Everyone understands that the current parliament and major transformation are mutually exclusive concepts. We can never build a civilized country with yesterday's architects of the Yanukovych's regime. I do not believe that people, who voted for dictatorial laws yesterday, will vote for the modernization of the state today.
2. Start a real fight against corruption.
People face it everywhere, from maternity hospitals to cemeteries. For many years this system has been being built from above, so it must be destroyed the same way - by destroying the top of the corruption pyramid.
But the main thing is that the fight against corruption should be led by the President himself. This means to get rid of party quotas and not to appoint on the executive positions those who have bad reputation.And most importantly, the President himself must become a model of integrity and immaculacy for each citizen.
It should have been done as long as 20 years ago. Therefore, the work of the Lustration Committee in the near future should transform from the format of the NGO and become a real public authority with all the appropriate functions and powers.
4. Decentralization of power.
The previous government has sucked local self-government dry. The Yanukovych's government all the time was successfully using funds from local communities, there were difficulties even with the financing of protected items, which did not happen even during the financial crisis. The result is a decline of local government. We need huge resources to revive villages and towns again.
5. Immediate application for NATO membership. This entails a real reform of the Armed Forces, and increased defense. It does not take political games or statements about referendum - only the good will of the highest officials."
"This list can be expanded and detailed. But now it's about getting on the right path, which will lead Ukraine to European standards in every area of life. I am sure, we can do it. Ukraine has no other choice but to become a modern and strong state" - Victor Baloha said.

В наших політиків є фантастична властивість: прилаштування. Віктор Іванович зараз одягає на себе шкіру реформатора. Хіба попереднє його владування нас, люди, нічого не навчили? Чи можна лису вірити?
