Co-author of the 1993 Constitution assessed the law on public authority

Shablinsky noted that & nbsp; the President of Russia and & nbsp; could fire governors on his own initiative, but now there is the right to issue heads of regions before & nbsp; their removal from & nbsp; office.

“ The president replaces the legitimacy that people give de jure. Yes, voters and & nbsp; not & nbsp; the best governors were elected. Nevertheless & nbsp; less, if people have elected him, one person cannot & nbsp; remove. This is my objection as a lawyer & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; said Shablinsky.

He & nbsp; added that & nbsp; resetting the terms of governors & nbsp; & mdash; this is a different story, which does not & nbsp; refer to & nbsp; 2004, when the elections were canceled. Thus, the heads of the regions have opened a new option, the lawyer clarified. Under the & nbsp; current Russian leader Vladimir Putin, the terms of all governors were “ zeroed out '' several times. The last time this happened was in & nbsp; 2012 and & nbsp; affected the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov.

Shablinsky expressed the assumption that & nbsp; the purpose of the law is the complete loyalty of the governors to the president. Basically, nothing & nbsp; will change, since in & nbsp; currently these rules & nbsp; already and & nbsp; work. The lawyer answered the & nbsp; question about & nbsp; what to do to the citizens who chose the governor, but & nbsp; then realized that they made a mistake. “ Wrong & nbsp; & mdash; must endure until the & nbsp; end of the term & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; underlined & nbsp; he.
