LPR authorities to adopt socio-economic development programme in May

LUGANSK, March 15 (Lugansk Media Centre) - Lugansk People’s Republic authorities plan to adopt in May a five-year programme for the Republic’s socio-economic development, LPR parliament speaker, head of the Republic’s Executive Committee of the Mir Luganschine social movement Denis Miroshnichenko said at a news briefing at the Lugansk Media Centre on Thursday.

On March 14, acting LPR head Leonid Pasechenik said at a session of the Mir Luganschine Republican Council that LPR residents would be able to participate in working out the Republic’s five-year socio-economic development programme and offered Mir Luganschine to arrange its broad public discussion.

“We plan to discuss the programme for several months; we expect it in May but at the present stage we’ve just begun (to collect proposals from LPR residents regarding the development programme - eds Lugansk Media Centre); we’ll review the programme discussions and proposals,” Miroshnichenko said.

“We expect (the programme to be adopted in May - eds Lugansk Media Centre) but it’s not the end of discussion that‘s important today; we have to take into account all proposals from the population,” he said.

Earlier, Miroshnichenko said LPR residents could call hotlines or visit the Mir Luganschine website to bring forward their suggestions concerning the programme.

Mir Luganschine is the largest social movement in the LPR numbering more than 101,000 members. It was established before the election to LPR People’s Council on November 2 2014. The Mir Luganschine candidates won 69.42 percent of votes finishing first in the election. Acting LPR head Leonid Pasechnik was unanimously elected chairman of the movement at its 3rd Republican Congress on February 17.
