#Commentary of Olga Makeyeva on plans to establish DPR’s Public Chamber
The active participation of citizens in the state’s political life is very crucial. The Public Chamber is, first and foremost, public control, as well as an expert platform within the framework of which it is possible to establish collaboration between various social institutions.
The experience of the Russian Federation in the establishment of such an exclusive and important institution, especially during state-building, is necessary to establish the Public Chamber.
It should be noted that the citizens of the Republic have experience in the discussion of Donbass’ socio-economic and political issues, their prevention and search for optimal solutions on the basis of the People’s Council. The discussion forum “People’s Club” has been created for this purpose.
I am sure that the Public Chamber of the DPR will be a communication platform not only for the discussion of urgent problems, but also to find solutions to problems encountered. Its establishment will strengthen a dialogue between the authorities and citizens and improve the efficiency of the state administration.
Olga Makeyeva, the Deputy Chairman of the DPR’s People’s Council
