I am convinced we have very good opportunities to record achievements in the upcoming years. According to our predictions, we will record economic growth and in case of a political dialogue we will be able to implement important reforms and we also clearly understand how we should do that.
Yes, we also referred to the issue of the candidate for the post of the Prime Minister, we talked about the Constitution, and the new model of governance. We shared the opinion that under the conditions of the challenges and issues facing the country the smooth transaction to the new governance model is of key importance.

Because, I reiterate, it’s of key importance to switch to the new model in a smooth, productive way with diminished risks.
