VILLAGE COURTS /Vladimir oblast/, 3 Aug. / TASS/. Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin considers that the source of happiness for the MP should be helping people.
“For the MP know what happiness is? For the MP happiness, when he can help people, citizens. It’s his calling,” he said on Thursday, communicating with the participants of the youth forum “Territory meanings on the Klyazma”. The subject of the change of young politicians formulated as KPI “happiness”.
“And if he [the Deputy] gets from this happiness and satisfaction, so he correctly chose this path,” – said Volodin.
In addition, according to the speaker of the state Duma, for any person a source of happiness lies in non-material things. “Happiness is a state of mind. When you’re in love, it is a state of happiness. When you come to work, you like it and you can realize myself – it is happiness”, – he said.
Complaints about “dead” season
Volodin believes that the talk of politicians about the complexity of the electoral campaign in the “dead” summer season before the September single day of voting only justify their inefficient operation.
One of the participants noted that the holding of municipal, regional and Duma elections in the single voting day in September complicates candidates to conduct election campaign, as it is in the summer – the season of summer cottages and vacations. Volodin in response reminded that in many countries, elections are held in autumn.
