the Proposed amendments were discussed in the state Duma. That’s what the comments in an interview given by the Chairman of the Federation Council on constitutional legislation Andrey Klishas.
“we are Talking about the fact that citizens of the Russian Federation on national voting made a decision about that — could Putin be elected President or not. And that the President misspoke, that decision must pass the test of the constitutional court, because we have the first, the second Chapter of the Constitution unchanged. It is about the foundations of the constitutional system, rights and freedoms. All our amendments should be tested for compliance with the foundations of the constitutional order and the rights and freedoms of the individual enshrined in this important part of the Constitution in the first and second Chapter,” quoted Andrei Klishas, the TV channel “Russia 24”.
