Sergei Mironov said he had not voted for a law that allows governors to dissolve incapable regional legislatures
Federation Council Chairman Sergei Mironov said he had not voted for a law that allows governors to dissolve incapable regional legislatures. He said this law “hypothetically creates a dangerous tendency of one branch of government interfering in the affairs of another branch of government”. According to the law approved by the Federation Council, a governor may dissolve the regional parliament if a court has ruled that it has failed to hold a valid session within three months of election. A session is deemed invalid if it is attended by less than 50 percent of deputies. Observers say the changes were prompted by the situation in Tyva where the local parliament could not start working for six months because of disputes within parties. Having described this situation as “unusual and exceptional”, Mironov said the law was hasty. His colleagues believe that “this norm will practically not be invoked by regional heads and won’t be used”.
