More than 400 proposals: working group on amendments to the Constitution report to the President

Vladimir Putin on 13 February will hold a meeting with members of the working group on amendments to the Constitution. This was reported today by the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov. Just this minute in the Public chamber in Moscow held a new meeting of the working group. Its members discuss possible changes to the basic document of the country. Just at the moment already received about 400 proposals.

Working group on amendments to the Constitution does not stop even for a day. Of amendments around 400. Another proposal is to amend article of the basic law, which refers to the dissolution of Parliament by the President in the case that a triple will not be approved by the Prime Minister.

“this Proposed scheme is that it can designate the candidate, and he has a right to dissolve the state Duma. Not the obligation but the right to dissolve the State Duma”, — said Pavel Krasheninnikov, co-chair of the working group on preparation of proposals on introducing amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

the Amendments significantly alter the powers of the state Duma and the Federation Council. For example, the Chairman of the audit chamber earlier said the MPs. Now it is proposed to entrust it to the senators.

“Very correct, if that Supervisory body, which should monitor the activities of many government financial institutions in the country, it will be competence of the State Duma and the Federation Council,” — explains Svetlana Goryacheva, a member of the working group on preparation of proposals on introducing amendments to the Constitution.

the Status of the security Council, the inability of the Ombudsman to have a second citizenship, a mechanism for the dismissal of incompetent judges — all this within the working group discussed in a live dialogue and, importantly, discussed openly.

“Today, the media questions were, in particular, to me, what is being discussed actively the nullification of presidential terms. This issue is not discussed in the working group,” said Andrei Klishas, a co-chair of the RABgroup on the elaboration of proposals for the amendment of the Constitution.

the amendments propose, and the parliamentary party.

“Our team has drafted 15 amendments. We insist that the issue of state-forming role of the Russian people, was necessarily implemented. Russian for a thousand years under the banners of gathered 190 peoples and Nations, not to demolish any language, no faith, no culture. But this topic is not reflected in the Constitution. We believe that this is completely biased,” said Gennady Zyuganov, Chairman Communist party.

Proposals for amendments to the Constitution are received from legislators and from the public, and from the regions. Acceptance of amendments is not limited. But it’s time to report about the done work — so today, say the participants of the working group. In the near future they will meet with the head of state.
