According to Alexander Horoshavin, the current composition of the advisory body, formed in June this year, should pay attention to a number of areas.

- I consider it important that during the upcoming municipal elections the positive experience of the Public Chamber in advising people and organizing public control over the voting process be used. Another important direction in the work is public control under the new federal law of the same name. I believe that the members of the Public Chamber need to organize explanatory work on this issue, to develop common approaches to conduct public control, - said the governor.

He added that he expects that members of the Chamber will take an active part in the formation of public councils under the executive authorities of the region, will offer their candidates from non-profit organizations for this work. Alexander Khoroshavin urged the Public Chamber to continue discussing on its site the legislative acts and normative documents adopted in the region, and also initiated an increase in the term of office of the advisory body from two to three years.
