We’re about to have elections of the school President and Ministers.
I want to run for Minister of Science.
I want to make a good election program, and spend the rest of my school years with interest.)
Since the age of 12 I am engaged in biology and microbiology circles, and quite well understand what career in biology you can make.
But I certainly do not have enough knowledge about the work of government bodies, and the position is still the Minister).
Tell me please, is it possible to attend meetings of the Duma?
