Pro-Kremlin experts have called the most ineffective Governor


Tuesday close to the Kremlin development Fund civil society will release their thirteenth quarterly efficiency rating of governors.

After the reprimand

The last place it was first occupied by the Governor of Karelia Alexander Hudilaynen. He “slipped” on four lines in comparison with the previous rating. This is due to the breach of obligations on the organization of resettlement of citizens from emergency housing, which led to the announcement of reprimand from the President, stated in the explanatory note to the rating (there).

A reprimand from the President is very serious for any official, especially the Governor, explains the head of Fcsd, former head of the political management of the Kremlin Konstantin Kostin.

The Federal center is really unhappy with the Khudilainen, says a source close to the Kremlin. But resign he won’t quit, says the source . According to him, the question of the future of the head of Karelia will postpone the next election cycle. “To find a replacement in this region difficult,” he said.

For the head of Karelia the last place in the ranking of the Fcsd was “quite expected”, said his press Secretary Marina Kabatak. “The reprimand was a fair and justified, because the program [on resettlement from emergency housing] was broken, so that the miracle we were waiting for,” she explained. After that Hudilaynen “drew conclusions”: dismissed the regional government and raised the question of resettlement of citizens from failing housing stock under his personal control. The head of the region personally goes on construction sites, at construction sites are set for the camera, lists Kabatak.

Who else dipped

In addition to Judilynn, the bottom five of the list included the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov, the Governor of the Omsk region Viktor Nazarov, Governor of the Yaroslavl region Nikolay Yastrebov and the head of the Perm region Viktor Basargin.

While Hawks has strengthened its position, rising to six lines. This is the highest growth positions in this rating, notes Kostin. He explains it a stable situation in the economy of the region and there past the meeting of the state Council. “In a difficult situation Yaroslavl region became the donor. In addition, such major events as the state Council, always well affect the current positions of the governors,” he said.

Morozov, who took 76-79 place in the ranking, this time down only one line. However, a year weakened by more than ten lines: a year ago Morozov 64-65 place.

More rating Kostina “sunk” the Governor of the Novgorod region Sergey Mitin — it dropped by ten positions. The Novgorod district court sentenced the former Deputy head of the administration of the Novgorod region Alexander Shalaev to eight years for major embezzlement of budgetary funds, explain the authors of the rating the weakening of the Novgorod Governor.

The new leader

The leader of the rating became the first Governor of the Tyumen region Vladimir Yakushev, has risen on two lines. He took the place of the Governor of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous district Dmitry Kobylkin, who lost in the ranking one point.

Growth position Yakushev due to several factors, noted in the explanatory note to the rating. In particular, sustainable economic position of the region in late 2015 — early 2016, despite the difficult socio-economic situation in the country. The regional government has managed to reduce its debt burden, lead the authors of the rating of the second argument. In addition, the region actively participates in implementation of policy of import substitution in the field of mechanical engineering.

Earlier in the rating was the fourth group, getting in which, heads of regions often soon retired. In particular, this happened with the head of North Ossetia Taimuraz Mamsurova. In recent editions of the so-called group of death was abolished, there were only three: “very high rating”, “high” and “medium”.

Appearing in the latest ranking Kostin heads of regions often soon retire. In particular, at the beginning of March the post of head of the Tver region left Andrey Shevelev. In the December rating the efficiency of governors he was sharing the last place with Sergei Yastrebov.

When the rankings take into account sociological studies and expert assessments, Rosstat data in terms of ratio of money income and expenditure of population, social and economic indicators of the regions and mediacatalyst the activities of the governors. Also, the authors of the rating took into account the factor of affiliation, namely, the cases of conflict of interest, abuse of office and corruption by regional heads and their deputies.
