or Never such was and here again
In St. – Petersburg on Saturday a conference was held SPPS, which extended for two years the powers of the presidency and the President. And on Tuesday, the opposition leader withdrew his candidacy for the post.
The revolt of the “Decembrists” have failed.
Characteristically, the conference was held in violation of the law, because the court just a few weeks vetoed the conduct of any action related to the election. The extension of the term and for a period of two years, undoubtedly falls under the category of elections, as legitimized every meeting participants, who themselves demonstrated the mandates on Instagram.
It was like the club races, where the rules no one knows and if they know something is neglecting. The regatta, which usually wins the Commodore and not only because he has the new and well-kept boat and the best sailors in the team, but also because the local judge of the competition not even waiting for direct instructions to determine the winner, just he pre guesses the desire of the management… And then the winner generously put to the Banquet and all grievances be delayed in the atmosphere of this PseudoTUBE and Maritime fraternity, the Word that was somehow tainted everything turned out.
Let me remind you, it all started innocently, with failure to prevent the December Bureau SPPS individual representatives of the sailing community, who are rightly indignant, because the ban violated the basic rights of members of public organization. Sparring on the Internet and concerns of a large number of St. Petersburg yachtsmen that behind closed doors can be dragged decisions that violate other rights, moreover, accompanied by rumors about certain commercial interests of the beneficiaries of SPPS, caused a spontaneous reaction in the form of nominating an alternative candidate for President.
There is already the joke was over. The parties to the conflict, passed in a public plane, began to recruit supporters. Of course, with mutual irregularities. The authorities have refused to register converts, but the opposition could not obtain lists of members of the HGA, knowing that there are random people enough ( although the lists are devoid of personal data is, of course, completely open information). And then one of the supporters of the new wave is filed in court. The response was quick and the court banned the conference of SPPS to ensure fair elections.
A bucket of cold water worked, the candidates met and developed a Memorandum of principles for the conduct of elections. But defending the ruling party today has abandoned its obligations and embarked on a military solution to the issue. The situation is again deadlocked.
YACHT Russia, covering inflames the conflict, appealed to the Presidium of all-Russian sailing Federation with a proposal to create a conciliation Commission. The reaction was not that unexpected, but cynical: the chiefs not condescend to answer or comment and the website of the Federation began to drive the movie, praising the current President of SPPS, and then was completely laid out the information that the conference will be held “in any weather”. Of course, funny if it were not so sad: the leadership of the WFTU showed once again that he doesn’t care about public opinion, that he has neither the desire nor the resources to respond to the acute situation in the regions (just think about how long lasted conflicts in the Volga region, Krasnodar Krai…), and the position fits in one hateful formula: “the bosses are always right!”.
But here’s what’s new showed the conflict: having exhausted the possibilities of pre-judicial to the peace process, losing hope that it will hear one of the parties did not hesitate to sue. And although sailing is one in which the court (and the protest Committee is not a kind of court?) is the race result, captains SPPS offended by this turn in the showdown.
Like, not on-patsanski. Yeah, not concepts. Which, unfortunately, the leadership of the work only to break through the solutions at any cost. So it was at the election conference of the WFTU in 2016, so it was with the appointment of the head coach of national team of Russia and in many other cases.
And everything would be fine, if arbitrary decisions have benefited the development of sports, if the head stood a certain Danko, Lee Kuan yew or Stephen Jobs from sails, possessing secret knowledge and a great resource for moving forward. This is not so.
It is the exclusionary decision-making, favoritism, distrust of public opinion and unwillingness to listen to him, fear to involve community leaders who are mocked contradict superiors, lies at the root of stagnation and decline in the authority of the WFTU. Disregard for the real challenges and forces boaters to look for and find ways to solve their problems outside of the Federation. (Not a secret that most of the real achievements of the St. Petersburg sailors SPPS has a very indirect relationship). In this way, by the way, is going to go the failed St. Petersburg candidate. Although reserves the right to defend the interests of boaters and inside the organization is a monopoly.
And you, dear readers, in what way? And what would be of more benefit? Join the discussion if you want to use it only on election day.
