«My time on this post is running out, and I my certainty and hope is – to do everything I can to help my country. And I hope that I will have a chance to work for the good of my country. I would not want to for another country,»- admits Auditor General Inguna Sudraba, whose term is coming to an end in the end of 2012.
«I do not trust political parties and I support a presidential state. Even now my vision is such – in order for our country to progress in development, the country needs excellence, a team of strong people capable of changing things. But – no strong team can be formed through political systems,»- Sudraba said in an interview to Neatkariga.
According to her, principles of agreements between parties only make certain that projects are being realized in the interest of a narrow circle of individuals. The real intent of any party is to acquire some important post, as opposed to actually benefiting the country in some way. “This is why there is no long term activity, because it is not necessary. It is enough to work from election period to election period, and achieve being elected again. The raising of public awareness is not important to political parties, because it has been enough to ensure self-preservation with politics, which calls for people to hate one another: seeking the worst in some, denying the work of others, not creating positive results,”- Auditor General says.
«I believe that, soon, we will have nothing left, but territory, a flag and a national anthem. And state language. Governments are no longer in control of the world; instead conglomerates and international business pulls the strings the main interest of which – is to acquire raw materials, divide the markets, and dictate beneficial conditions for themselves…Not only in Latvia. But that does not mean that we should be completely helpless and do everything some shadowy figure tells us to do without first asking the question – what is more important for us?»- Sudraba says.
«We are trying too hard to make others like us. We are forgetting about ourselves, what we, what our country needs, what can help us stand out. I believe that Latvia lacks positive energy. Of course, people are looking for sources for livelihoods, but, I believe, that the part of them that leaves our country do it because they want a part of fortune, from the stories of success they once heard. The want to be part of success and results,»- explains Auditor General.
