work on the preparation of amendments to the Constitution has reached the final stages. This week, the working group is expected to submit their proposals to the state Duma. Today, February 11, the new amendments discussed in the Public chamber, where they talked about the status of national projects, the possibility to give the Federation Council the right to appoint the head of the audit chamber and other important proposals — they have about four hundred. Which in the end can be claimed?
the building of the Public chamber working group on preparation of amendments to the Constitution reported on intermediate results. They have been four amendments to the basic law. 128 consider in profile Committee of the state Duma. Now the whole array should be processed legally and presented in the form of texts.
Behind for almost a month of work, eight meetings, but the ideas from the group more and more. Fresh offer — mention in the Constitution of national projects, because their execution depends on the standard of living of all Russians.
“raising the status of national projects will allow us to generate even more careful, responsible attitude to their implementation”, — said the member of the working group on preparation of proposals on introducing amendments to the Constitution of Russia Olga batalina.
Another amendment will avoid political crises in the future. Now according to the Constitution the President is obliged to dissolve the Duma if it thrice rejects the candidacy of the head of the government. This formulation serves to mitigate.
“I suggested that after all the President himself chose. The proposed scheme is as follows: it may designate the candidate, and he has a right to dissolve the State Duma”, — said the co-chair of the working group on preparation of proposals on amendments to the Constitution of Russia Pavel Krasheninnikov.
for all changes in the Constitution must be preserved and the balance between the branches Vlasti, and between government agencies. For example, the head of the audit chamber now according to deputies of the state Duma, but now they will vote for Ministers. The working group proposed the candidature of chief auditor of the country should consider the senators.
“it’s only Right that if, for example, the oversight body which should monitor the activities of many financial institutions, including the same Ministry of Finance, it will be already not the competence of the State Duma and the Federation Council,” — said the member of the working group on preparation of proposals on amendments to the Constitution of Russia Svetlana Goryacheva.
Here and not hide — in the working group often involve serious debate on the different proposals. Importantly, all discussions are open.
“Today, the questions from the media was that they actively discuss the nullification of presidential terms. This issue is not discussed in the working group”, — said co-chair of the working group on preparation of proposals on amendments to the Constitution of Russia Andrey Klishas.
the amendments are prepared and the political parties. Gennady Zyuganov admitted that he is not against the mention of God in the preamble of the Constitution:
“When I studied the Bible, the Epistle of St. Paul to the Thessalonians is the main slogan of communism: who does not work shall not eat. In fact, we are in many ways the moral code of the Builder of communism copied from the Bible.”
These and other proposals to amend the Constitution members of the working group this Thursday, 13 February, will discuss with the head of state.
