MOSCOW, August 30. /TASS/. The Presidium of the General Council “United Russia” at session on Thursday has approved the regulation on the establishment of the project “Center of support of civil initiatives” (CPGI), which will be distributed at the site of supporters of the party. Informed about the launch of such a center, said the Secretary of the General Council of party Andrey Turchak at the youth forum “Mashuk” in Pyatigorsk.
As explained in a speech at the meeting, the co-chair of the Central coordination Council of supporters of “United Russia”, Deputy of the State Duma Sergei Boyarsky, project CPGI is a mechanism that provides support, promotion, scale, and legal support for civil society activists, as well as initiatives of NGOs. “His challenge is to all activists, NGOs — saw the party real and effective help in their initiatives,” he said.
According to Boyarsky, the capacity of the party to help civil initiatives is huge, but today it is implemented minimally. “The party capable of making for public organizations and public activists much more. A simple conclusion of agreements with NGOs in a flexible, constantly changing segment of society does not bring the desired effect for the party, which could give the system work”, — said the Deputy.

Work will be carried out in all regions, and in General, the development of local initiatives and their replication for us is a priority. Thus, we intend to be the kind of lobbying interests of civil society, especially as such a request exists,” — said the Deputy.
He added that the work of CPHI will be coordinated by the “Supervisory Council, which is planned to invite famous and respected of public men, deputies, Federation Council members, prominent experts, business representatives, Executive government, media.”
