A week ago elections were held in the state Duma. Leading the votes by party was “United Russia”. It is composed of many representatives of show business. Actress Maria Kozhevnikova, TV host Timur Kizyakov, directed by Fedor Bondarchuk, only a few representatives for whom politics is not the main profession. “StarHit” to find out whether there is a celebrity among politicians.
The state Duma elections were last Sunday. With a score of 54.19% won “United Russia”. Its population – more than 2 million people, every 20 minutes a worker culture. Actress Maria Kozhevnikova, TV host Timur Kizyakov, directed by Fedor Bondarchuk, only a few representatives for whom politics is not the main profession. “StarHit” figured out if the stars place in the government.
Some celebrities are of the opinion that if man was able to break in the sphere of culture, so he has intelligence, so he is able to conquer political heights. Other stars, however, believe that they should not run for the state Duma.
Maria Maksakova, an Opera singer, the Deputy of the State Duma of the VI convocation believes that it is possible to combine the performance in the theatre and a career politician. The star shared with “StarHit” his point of view.
“We cannot deny that the media helps the face to get to power. But fame fame the strife. And to convince the voters of its capabilities, you need to say and do literate things. Popularity in the field of the singer or the actor simply gives good advance. People think: “If something the person could do in the field of culture, he probably has the intelligence”. Our country has experienced a restructuring, which is to get the position, it was necessary to overcome all stages of career ladder. Now another way… If a person has no legal education or experience in legislative bodies, at least at small-town meetings, where he will know what a bureaucratic job? This will come to the Duma and become the first few years for the state account to conduct training. I have higher education, I’m an honorary graduate of the Moscow Academy of law. It allowed me to quickly delve into the work of the Deputy. In 2011, when he ran for the Duma, aware that a person could help me. I seven years he hosted the program “romanticism of a Romance” and perform songs that loves the older generation – it’s our core constituency, along with teachers and doctors. So I understand celebrities calling on heart rate, although I think that making a choice should be still the head and the heart – love house of her husband and children.”
Edita believes that it has no place in politics, because artists think differently than the representatives of the legislative bodies.
“Again, recently wrote: “Edita will be the Deputy.” What did the Internet do not publish. Said I was a candidate for the state Duma from party of some kind. This is also true. Five years ago really came to me with a proposal: “Edita, try yourself in the role of officer of the Legislative Assembly of Saint Petersburg, on the laws of influence”. Then immediately said, “Thank you, but is forced to give up.” And now the view won’t change: everyone has to do their job. I’m almost 80 years old, and I have to play politics? I’m an artist and I think that people from our profession think differently – do not place them among legislators. We have a different mission – spiritually and culturally to develop people, provide them with leisure. I am fully committed to the viewer. Even with a temperature of 40 will speak! Once released in this condition, barely alive. Read the burial service two branches, after which I was taken away in an ambulance. But during the performance I was the most joyful person! For me, God is the audience, and concerts is life, whereas politicians have their gods. By the way, I would note that many of my colleagues went to the Duma, but ran out, realizing that their calling is in another. There’s one exception that proves the rule – my old friend Joseph Davidovich Kobzon. This person has this mindset that he can multitask. In the morning Kobzon is on the meeting with the deputies, discussing the laws, and in the evening gives you an incredibly emotional concert. But he’s the only one.”
