According to Gudkov, the meeting of the Committee on constitutional legislation and state construction, in which it is composed, was unexpectedly issued a document, allowing to deprive of mandates of deputies in case of their systematic failure to appear at meetings or “non-compliance factional discipline”, i.e., not coordinated with the leadership of the vote.
The bill authored by the leader eserov Sergey Mironov, aimed, according to Gudkov, especially against his colleague Ilya Ponomaryov, who is now in exile, was rejected by the Committee. Today, however, the deputies did not respond to his repeated consideration, decided that this formal procedure. In the end, the bill by default was considered to be approved, after which will soon be delivered no plenary vote.
Gudkov notes that the bill now proposed to violate the Constitution: so, Deputy, deprived of the mandate that “pressed the button three times” will not be able to get a mandate in the new Parliament. The politician fears that the document in its current form can be directed against the opposition, voting is not, as decided by the faction. At the same time it raises the question, whether then such as he, the deputies, to be elected in the election.
In addition, I am sure the opposition, the second reading of the bill will be amended, which will allow to deprive of the mandate of all MPs, even “they bring to the boardroom of the Duma of the sleeping bag”.
The politician says that “the Duma, in the case of adoption of law it will be possible to put the cross. How exactly to build — still don’t know, but it is obvious that today’s cheating with the stuffing of the document and was arranged”.Related posts:
