Volodin told how we should change the Constitution
The powers of Parliament makes sense to expand, and the Executive branch to reduce, the Chairman of the state Duma. Why Volodin decided to raise this issue now?
Vyacheslav Volodin urged “to eliminate the Constitution, the imbalance of the branches of government”. According to the speaker of the state Duma, the Parliament’s powers makes sense to expand, and the Executive branch, on the contrary, to reduce. In this regard, according to Volodin, in the basic law would be worth to make some changes.
Why the speaker decided to raise this question now, says the President of Fund “the Petersburg policy” Michael Vinogradov: “the Agenda is empty enough to discuss almost nothing. Garbage topic is still a little left on the agenda, the theme of Magnitogorsk is also already podzabyvat, so it is possible to throw some the topic and see the reaction, which may be more acute, more active than usual. On the other hand, may be image was not very successful for the leadership of the state Duma, was talking in the context of the Congress of “United Russia” about the possible weakening of the leadership Council. In January is also not clear history with bills Klishas. So, perhaps, it is important to give a signal to the outside, and deputies that the initiative we have, the initiative is not lost, we are not defending ourselves, we have a lot of ideas.”
Another thing, maybe there is the risk that in one or two day discussion played out, if you do not get some powerful recharge or powerful debate.
In October of last year about some of the shortcomings of the Constitution, which can be corrected by point changes, said the Chairman of the constitutional court Valery Zorkin. And in December, Vladimir Putin compared the basic law with a living organism, which can and should develop.
