Party of Regions lawmaker Rinat Akhmetov hopes the new government will achieve an economic growth.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this in Donetsk at a press conference, which he held with famous Russia composer Igor Krutoy, after visiting three children institutions on the occasion of St. Nicolas Day today.

“First of all, our party shifted into the opposition yesterday, so I am also in the opposition from yesterday. Secondly, we will hope that this government will reach the economic growth”, said R. Akhmetov.

“And the task of the opposition – is to supervise the actions of the power”, he summed up.
