Sergei Shoigu topped the government rating

"RIA News, Izvestia and Interfax today submitted a government rating. According to a survey of experts and politicians, Viktor Ishayev was recognized as the most ineffective minister.

Sergei Shoigu topped the government rating

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, and Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev topped the government rating compiled by Ekho Moskvy radio station, RIA Novosti news agency, Izvestia newspaper and news agency Interfax. Viktor Ishayev, Minister for Development of the Far East, was an outsider on the list.

The rating was based on four indicators: experts evaluated the effectiveness, influence and popularity of ministers. The fourth point was the mentioning of politicians in the media, provided by the Interfax news agency. The final list consisted of all items, but the authors of the study recognized that some of the indicators are more important to them than others. Based on the fact that for a politician, influence and effectiveness are more substantial, they were given 40% specific weight in the overall ranking, and popularity and mentioning were left on 16% and 4%, respectively.

47 politicians, media managers and experts were invited to express their opinions, including former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, heads of both houses of the Federal Assembly, Valentina Matvienko and Sergey Naryshkin, former head of the presidential administration of Russia Alexander Voloshin and heads of major media outlets.

The top five leaders in the overall ranking are in the top positions in individual indicators. The head of the Ministry of Finance, Anton Siluanov, was recognized as the most effective minister, although he holds this position for about a year and a half, and the most influential is First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov. The rest of the indicators leading Sergei Shoigu.

The five outsiders also practically does not change according to different indicators. The most ineffective, non-influential and unpopular ministers were the head of the Ministry of Development of the Far East Viktor Ishayev (he took the last position on all points), Minister of Regional Development Igor Slyunyaev, Head of the Ministry of Natural Resources Sergey Donskoy, Minister of Relations with Open Government Mikhail Abyzov and Head of the Ministry of Labor Maxim Topilin.

A spokeswoman for Maxim Topilina, Maria Isyanova, did not comment on the unpopularity of the head of the Ministry of Labor before the publication of official data, but said that the department was very much waiting for the results of this poll.

“Unfortunately, I don’t know the method of compiling this rating, so it’s premature to comment on its results,” Isyanova explained. Get a comment Victor Ishaev "Izvestia" failed.

Present Deputy Prime Minister Vladislav Surkov, who was dismissed in early May, is also present in the rating. However, his performance is low: the official is in the 14-th place (from 28), gaining the same number of points with the Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov. In general, all the deputies of Dmitry Medvedev, except for Igor Shuvalov, showed results that were often worse than the ministers subordinate to them. So, Dmitry Rogozin took the sixth place, Dmitry Kozak - the seventh, Arkady Dvorkovich - the ninth, Olga Golodets - 11, and Alexander Khloponin turned out to be 19.

The results of an expert survey differ significantly from studies conducted among ordinary Russians. In early April, VTsIOM published a popularity rating for members of the Cabinet based on a survey of 1600 citizens.

The most unpopular minister was the head of the Ministry of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov, while in the rating compiled by politicians and media managers, he took a steady position in the middle - 13-e place. But the Russians are unsatisfactory about the work of Veronika Skvortsova, the head of the Ministry of Health (15-place in the ranking of experts) and Agriculture Minister Nikolai Fedorov (22 line). Viktor Ishayev, who took the last place in the rating of experts among Russians, turned out to be much more popular - he took the ninth place according to the results of the VTsIOM survey.

Dmitry Livanov told Izvestia that he did not intend to overestimate the importance of the fact that experts and politicians rated his work higher than ordinary Russians.

“Of course, I pay some attention to ratings, I try to familiarize myself with them, but I’m not going to overestimate their value, I’ll just continue to work,” the head of the Ministry of Education and Science assured.

In the top five leaders of VTsIOM, in addition to Sergey Shoigu, Sergey Lavrov and Dmitry Rogozin, the effectiveness of which was recognized by the experts, the Minister for Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov and the Head of the Ministry of Communications Nikolay Nikiforov also appeared.

Director General of VTsIOM Valery Fedorov notes that such discrepancies in the results are related to the fact that the survey was conducted among different categories of Russians.

- Ordinary Russians know little about the work of specific ministers, they hear only the loudest signals. Lavrov and Shoigu always hold high positions, as they are often mentioned in the media, the expert notes. - According to other ministers, people are judged by their industry profile. With 1970 – 1980-s, it is considered that agriculture in the country is ruined. Therefore, without knowing the details of the work of the Ministry of Agriculture, people put low marks on the head of this department.

    Ratings can only be trusted by those compiled from surveys of ordinary citizens, and even with a stretch of the imagination. And why not include the prime minister in the rating, they are afraid that he will take a low place.

        And what is Shuvalov manifesting then? Yes, and Dvorkovich in 9th place, about Surkov, and it would not be worth remembering ... A made-up rating, not otherwise.

          The guards of President Vladimir Putin tried to prevent Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich from entering the Bocharov Ruchei residence. According to the newspaper "RBK daily", the official managed to pass the post only after a call to Dmitry Medvedev.

          The Volvo car, in which were A. Dvorkovich, Prime Minister’s spokeswoman Natalya Timakova and protocol head Marina Entaltseva, arrived at the gates of the residence 10 minutes before D. Medvedev’s motorcade. However, they did not let the car in, as the vice-premier of the Russian government was not on the lists.

          “We’ll leave now, let them sort it out later,” A. Dvorkovich, who got out of the car, threatened. "You need to know such people by sight!" - sounded from the car where M. Entaltseva and N. Timakova were sitting. “We have our own boss. We will tell him that: A. Dvorkovich arrived without documents,” the FSO officers retorted.

          The discussion ended with a call from the car: "Dima, they won't let us in!" After 20 seconds, Volvo was given the go-ahead.

          "Security is security, there are hiccups," the presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov sighed in a conversation with RBC daily.

          Maybe the FSO mocked Dvorkovich for a reason?

      Ratings can be trusted in the same way as horoscopes for a week in a cheap press. Any, at first glance, honest and correct survey, maybe, for various reasons and conditions, absolutely does not coincide with the real situation.

        Yes, it’s very interesting. True, the Echo overdid it. The ladies closest to the top line were obviously ashamed. It’s amazing how they figured out not only that they are influential but also very effective. It’s with what effects they hit the poor, Even the president doesn’t know who is effective and who is not , Of course, they began to check the dissertations. The bad DUMA was already very excited. They are even afraid of the order they themselves advocate, And the doctor down there, he was interested in medicine there in the outback, And that 80% of the medicine depends on regional and municipal authorities she doesn’t care much for anyone, But she immediately became interested in financing her, A strange rating system of these gentlemen, And where is the head of the SKRF, We need to get to know what the gentlemen in the middle have become famous for, Something is not great success but there is influence, And there are a lot of questions thoughts for whom they work are clearly not for the benefit of the country,

    I think that Shoigu S.'s rating is well deserved. In the new position he stayed a little, but already put many "on the ears". And rightly so. Good luck with his business.

        For some reason, the Moscow Region was pulling for the governorship, and this is not so far from the institution of the presidency.

      Surely we'll see. And the GDP itself will bless it. I am sure that this is what is going on. Not the worst option available. Question only in 2018 or in 2024?

    Good morning everybody hi

    I consider it logical that Sergey Shoigu headed the government rating. In my opinion, if he still headed not only the rating but the government itself, everyone would benefit from it.

    Pseudoscientific nonsense, with factors of influence, popularity, etc. VCIOM is an absolutely unnecessary and frankly harmful institution, manufacturer and supplier of false fabrications for the media.
    Note. At first he added the definition "liberal" to the abbreviation of the media, but then removed it, since there are simply no others in the Russian Federation.

    According to a survey of experts and politicians

    47 politicians, media managers and experts invited to express their opinion

    Result: politicians with their PR managers compiled a rating of politicians. It is logical to assume that for the politicians themselves.

    I hope that Shoigu will go higher, at least to the chairman of the government, and let Medvedev sell iPhones on the market, and have good connections.
