CEC Head Ella Pamfilova explained why to vote for amendments in the Constitution can only be a single pack, and what to do if part of the amendments, voting support, and part rejects. According to Pamfilova, organize the voting on each individual amendment is technically impossible.

“Imagine if there was one amendment, well two, well three, maximum four could fit newsletter. But when is typed in such a serious package that is technologically inconceivable, cannot be Bulletin – kNthe yoke intact,” – said Pamfilova on the national electoral forum. Her words leads RIA “Novosti”.

One of the participants asked the head of the CEC, what if one of the amendments do not like, and other acceptable, comparing a package with a set menu where one of the dishes is not desirable. “Well, you don’t like salad, but you like soup or cutlets. You then decide: no, abandon the whole lunch because I don’t like salad, or I will take the salad did not eat, me neither cold nor hot, and the soup and burgers will be with me,” – said Pamfilova.

“the Main parameters that are of concern and important for most, for our citizens, they are fixed, it remains, this is important. What is worse: what I hope and what I support or what I categorically do not accept”, – concluded the head of the CEC.

In the framework of the forum also raised the question, whether to accept the new Constitution of the Russian Federation, instead of the mass of amendments, but the head of the CEC this option is rejected. “The new Constitution is the basic amendments to the main articles. Hence, it is necessary to gather a constitutional Assembly, to assemble the constitutional Assembly, must act first take… It’s at least 9 months or a year at best,” said Pamfilova.

It also stated that the Commission did not receive any settings from the authorities on the turnout for the national vote and does not intend to campaign before the vote. With the amendments to the Basic law will be available at each polling station.

“once completely formulated amendments in the final version, we have to make in each area was the current Constitution. And that brochures and posters, where the constitutional amendments will be presented in the form in which they entered to the law,” – said Pamfilova. According to her, each person will have the opportunity to carefully read the packagesm amendments and decide whether to vote for them.

Previously, experts interviewed by the Russian service of the BBC, said that the presidential amendments to the Constitution contrary to the law, which requires that amendments “covers interrelated change of the constitutional text.” In addition, the document requires that the law of amendment has received “a name that reflects the essence of this amendment”. If the bill is found in violation, the state Duma must return it to the initiator of the amendment (in this case – Vladimir Putin).

Experts of the movement “Golos” notes that such amendment, as a guarantee of a minimum wage not less than the subsistence minimum, the indexation of social benefits and pensions “it’s hard to relate to the issues of organization of public authority”. “Every amendment to the Constitution must be separately and thoroughly discussed. “Package” amending the Constitution – otherwise this is, in fact, the adoption of a new Constitution,” – said the experts of the “Voice”.

Specialist on constitutional law Ilya shablinsky also stated that no amendments General subject: according to him, the document was split into several bills with individual names, whereas the current title is not consistent with the law. He drew attention that the wording of the law speaks of “amendment” and not “amendments” – this means that each proposal to amend the Constitution must be made as a separate document.

in addition, if amendments were made separately, citizens would have the opportunity to Express their attitude to each of them. In this case, “arbitrator”, which would resolve this issue, there is no constitutional court does not validate the law on amendments to the Constitution and refused to consider the law on the amendment and to liquidate the Supreme arbitration court.

Recently part of the presidential amendments to the Constitution became fixed ideas of God, the family as a Union of a man and a woman and the state-forming role of the Russian people and the Russian language. The amendment also States that “children are the most important heritage of the Russian Federation”. It is assumed that the norm of the ideals of their ancestors and faith in God in the Constitution will coexist with the wording that Russia is a secular state. The Constitution has been proposed that Russia “honors the memory of Fatherland defenders and protect the historical truth”.

Part of the amendments were also social norms. Thus, it is proposed to specify that in Russia in accordance with Federal law guaranteed by compulsory social insurance, targeted social support of citizens and the indexation of social benefits and other social payments. Putin in the last batch we adjusted the wording, ensuring mandatory indexation of pensions of Russians. The second reading, the President proposed to enshrine in the Constitution the wording, according to which the indexation of pensions in Russia is carried out at least once a year.
