of 3 July the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on the entry into force of the amendments to the Constitution with the number 4. He also requested the parliamentarians to bring the Russian legislation into conformity with the Basic law and the government to allocate the money. However, the work to be done, you need to modify about a hundred Federal laws and five regional. Respondents NEWS.ru experts have told how much time it may need.
The head of the Central election Commission, Ella Pamfilova, on Friday, July 3, reported that the CEC approved the results of the national plebiscite on the amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, and added that “voting data reliable and the legitimacy of the outcome of the vote uncontested.” After a few hours, the press service of the Kremlin published the text signed by President Vladimir Putin’s decree “About official publication of the Constitution of the Russian Federation as amended by the amendments.” It says that the amendments, supported by the citizens of our country, come into force on 4 July.
After this formal procedure the head of state took part in a videoconference with the working group on preparation of amendments to the Constitution. First he praised the organization of the poll, noting that in a pandemic coronavirus, this procedure had to be comfortable and safe for citizens. Putin also stressed that the results of the plebiscite showed “a high level of consolidation of society on key issues of national importance” and instructed to bring the Russian legislation into conformity with the provisions contained in the new edition of the Basic law.
I appeal to the government, regional governors, parliamentarians. Priorities are the values that cast their votes, our citizens should be fully implemented in certain things, in specific cases, in the budgets in all Federal programs and national projects. Each rule included in the Constitution, means the action not contemplation, namely, action, — said Putin.
In response, the head of the Duma Committee on state construction and legislation Pavel Krasheninnikov immediately appreciated the scale of the work ahead for the legislature.
According to our estimates, will need to change around 100, I emphasize, about 100 constitutional and Federal laws, he said.
Developed the theme of co-chair of the working group on preparation of amendments to the Constitution, the Director of the Institute of legislation and comparative law under the government of the Russian Federation taliya khabrieva. She noted that amendments shall be subject to not only Federal legislation, because the amendments relate to all levels of government.
According to rough estimates, if we turn to the legislation of the constituent entities, should be Cthe thread to adjust at least 650 of the statutes and laws of constituent entities of the Russian Federation, of which 557 of the laws, she said.
Yesterday the speaker of Council of Federation Valentina Matvienko in the TV channel “Russia 24” stated that both chambers of the Russian Parliament needs to work on changing about 90 laws. And the Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin assured that the work on the introduction of amendments will begin immediately. He estimates that will take at least 50 Federal and Federal constitutional laws.
Work on them will start literally almost today, because we are discussing these topics with our colleagues in the State Duma. We started to discuss them with colleagues in the government of the Russian Federation and in the Federation Council, he said.
That is, despite the fact that the amendments enter into force tomorrow, to live for him will only start after you have resolved any inconsistencies in the laws. In conversation with NEWS.ru the CEO of the company “Agency of political and economic communications” Dmitry Orlov has suggested that it will take no more than three months.
Dmitry Orlov, General Director of “Agency of political and economic communications”:
I do Not think that the process of amending the legislation after the adoption of the amendments to the Constitution will be long. I guess the duration will not exceed three months. Leaders of “United Russia”, the position of which depends on the passage of amendments in the Duma, have repeatedly stated that I support the President’s vision and will consider changes quickly, in order of priority. I think they will be prepared at the same time, “batch”, of course, when you save the order bills.
The President of the Russian Association of political advisers Alexey Kurtov notes that the priority of the legislators in the near future will be social well-being, then health, science, education, and defense.
Alexey Kurtov, President of the Russian Association of political consultants:
I Think that in bringing the legislative framework in line with the new Constitution will take a long time. It is possible that the current tenure of the state Duma is not enough, many tasks go into a “legacy” of the following composition. It is only about a hundred Federal laws require correction. And more than 650 of the laws and statutes need to be adjusted in the subjects. The main thing here — do not rush. No one is in a hurry — need a quiet and tidy job of our legislators.
However, due to pandemic coronavirus parliamentarians was plenty of time to prepare drafts of necessary bills. Hardly anyone doubted that the President’s proposed amendments tothe rod will cast the vote. And if this preparatory work has been done, we have a chance to conduct all the necessary legislation in the shortest possible time.
