Expert: Time comes for officials to be held responsible for imperfections

Astana, Kazakhstan, Nov.5

By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend: The criticism of the government by the president and the prime minister means that the time has come for public officials to take personal responsibility for their projects, according to a Kazakh political analyst Daniar Ashimbayev.

"From my point of view, the harsh criticism of the Kazakh government's doings by the president and by the prime minister has two goals: Firstly, to direct the ministers and the governors of the regions to work harder," Daniar Ashimbayev told Trend on Tuesday.

He recalled that there were situations when there were given orders, but they were being safely forgotten, or were being implemented formally, on paper and without enthusiasm.

"Unfortunately, our sad reality is that a kick is needed for active work. This is a kind of study, saying that if you do nothing, what's the point in your remaining in responsible posts," the expert said.

"The second aim in the government's criticism is to inform about the coming of the time for the officials' responsibility for imperfections," Ashimbayev said.

Recall, at the expanded meeting of the Kazakh government on October 11, the Cabinet of Ministers presented to the president the results of the country's socio-economic development for the first nine months of 2013. Nursultan Nazarbayev criticized the work of the government.

The implementation process of the president's orders that were given On October 11 was discussed in the government under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister Serik Akhmetov.

The Prime Minister emphasized the "low rates of work and insufficient attention by the ministers, governors, and generally by the government to the implementations of the president's orders". He also stressed the necessity of "operative and effective implementation of the president's orders".

In connection with the oversights in the work of state bodies, the government head reprimanded the First Deputy Minister of Industry and New Technologies Albert Rau, Deputy Minister of Regional Development Serik Nokin, Deputy Minister of Finance Ardak Tengebaev, Deputy Health Minister Bolat Tokezhanov, Deputy Minister of Agriculture Marat Tolybaev, Deputy Minister of Culture and Information Arman Kyrykbaev. A number of committee chairmen and other officials were also punished.

"If the situation doesn't change by the year end, then I reserve the right to submit proposals to the president about punishing top managers, including governors," Akhmetov said.

He also drew the attention of top managers of all state bodies, holdings and governors to the necessity of a qualitative and timely implementation of the president's orders and all program documents.

"The executive body is first of all an instrument of implementation of the president's policy. All and each member of the government, governors should remember this," the Prime Minister said.

"All activities of the government should be transparent and made known to the population through media outlet. This work should be systematic, permanent and maximally open," Serik Akhmetov said.

In this regard, he called on the Ministry of Culture and Information to be more active, to strengthen its informational activity.

The head of the government stressed that "all ministers and governors of the regions should also analyze their work by determining the effectiveness and productivity of the measures taken by them.

"We will know listen to the information about the implementation of the president's orders every week," Akhmetov summarized.
