Mironov has promised to revoke the mandates of Ponomareva and Mitrofanova for truancy

Faction “Fair Russia” in the State Duma of the Russian Federation intends to raise the question about deprivation of mandates of two of its members — Ilya Ponomaryov and Alexei Mitrofanov.

According to party leader Sergei Mironov, both of them did not appear in the Duma for a year, and that will be the reason for fractional treatment that should be taken today.

Mironov added that both the MP also did not participate in the work of relevant committees. Thus, although the fraction and “uninteresting their fate”, but it is necessary to outline the position in relation to politicians, Duma receives a salary (that of an ordinary Deputy, it amounts to little more than 300 thousand rubles per month).

Recall that a basis for possible revocation of the mandate was recently passed by the Duma a law that says that in the absence of Parliament within one month without good reason, the Deputy shall be deprived of his status.

We will remind that Ilya Ponomarev is in exile due to the fact that in Russia it is a criminal case on charges of complicity in embezzlement. Earlier in the framework of the administrative case for the same composition (lectures in SKOLKOVO) Ponomarev has paid all accrued damages. With Ponomareva lifted parliamentary immunity.

Read, as Ponomarev explained the “case “SKOLKOVO”.

Alexei Mitrofanov, also absent in Russia and devoid of immunity, is accused of complicity in the fraud, however, he presented a certificate that is being treated abroad, however, in contrast to Ponomaryov, his whereabouts are unknown.

State Duma Deputy Dmitry Gudkov and Ponomarev, expelled from the party “Fair Russia” (the deputies are forced to be in her faction) commented on MK the situation as follows: “Ilya Ponomarev involved and vote in every plenary session of the State Duma, it is possible to see on the page with statistics of his voting on the Parliament website, on which I have power of attorney. It is much more active in the Duma than many deputies from “Fair Russia”, which is present at the meetings in the best case one third of the deputies. Ponomariov got some footage for 4-5 months, prove it.”
