"The land, forests, natural resources should belong to the people," he said at a RIA Novosti press conference on Wednesday.
According to him, "the purchase and sale of land, except for the land holdings, garden plots, dachas and garages, are inadmissible." When presenting his election program "For the Homeland and the People's Will" he came out for the constitutional reform. "The country needs the Constitution of the Soviet-era people's power and not of a presidential autocracy," Kharitonov pointed out He said that the Soviet power should be restored and that we should move only forward. This is a road towards socialism.
Kharitonov promises to raise the minimal size of wages and pensions, restore the rights of citizens to rest and labor and the authority of the family, improve the environment, ensure the country's unity, liquidate crime and terrorism, and strengthen defense capacity.
But he did not give a clear answer to the question put by RIA Novosti to the effect what mechanisms he is going to use when realizing his economic policy. "The country has enough money, we should only restore the people's trust," he said and added that the nationalization of the natural resources will provide the necessary means.
