Deputies want to deny the right to vote for fellow truants

Representatives of the faction “United Russia” in the State Duma are preparing a document that will forbid deputies to vote for each other on other people’s cards, according to “Kommersant”.

According to the publication, the initiators of such legislative proposals made by the head of the faction EP Vladimir Vasilyev, the Vice-speaker from United Russia Sergei Neverov.

Recall that currently the state Duma is constantly criticized for the fact that many MPs are not in plenary meetings, leaving their name cards to colleagues who vote for them according to a common decision fraction.

Now, if such amendments will actually be made to article 85 of the rules of GD (this media was confirmed by the divan), this practice will end.

Note that at the end of the sessions of the previous convocation of the Duma, it adopted the law, according to which the Deputy can be taken away the mandate for absence from the workplace for more than 30 calendar days without good reason. The first person thus deprived of the mandate, was the Deputy of the state Duma Ilya Ponomarev, who is in exile because of criminal prosecution in Russia.

However, at the time of the adoption of the law on deprivation of mandates in the Duma, there were only 180 of the 450 deputies: this is the number cited in his blog, the Deputy Dmitry Gudkov.

The current initiative is in line with the policy of the Federation Council, where, in 2014, there were stricter requirements for the presence of the senators: they are, however, allowed to Express their positions in written statements addressed to the speaker of the Federation Council. Today, calling for senators not to pass the session re-joined Valentina Matvienko.
