the Leader of LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky has proposed to halve the number of deputies in Russia for the sake of savings and prevent the spread of coronavirus. In the Duma Committee on supervision and regulation called the idea unrealistic.
the Head of the liberal Democrats argued the proposal that this will “save money and to provide social distance” between the parliamentarians.
However, it is not only unrealizable, but also come to a deterioration in the quality of work with voters, said the Chairman of the Duma Committee for the control and regulations of Mikhail Romanov. The representative of “United Russia” has reminded that the number of MPs (450) is defined by the Constitution. From each County and region in the lower chamber there is a representative, who defends the interests of their constituents, reminded of the Novels.
– Reduce the number of deputies even theoretically unrealizable proposal from the point of view of all the existing legal norms, the MP said, quoted by RIA Novosti.
as for the quality of the work, it will get worse – after all, one member will have more constituents, whose interests he must defend all authorities. Thus, deteriorates the solution of the questions which are put to the voters themselves. He summarized that the proposal is not constructive.
