The Rodina parliamentary group trespassed the Duma procedure as it was demanding capital punishment back to Russia's Criminal Code
The Rodina (Motherland) parliamentary group trespassed the Duma procedure as it was demanding capital punishment back to Russia's Criminal Code, says Speaker Boris Gryzlov of the State Duma, parliament's lower house. In compliance with parliamentary rules, the issue ought to come up as an amendment of the acting legislation-in particular, the Criminal Code, rather than a Duma statement. A relevant bill is to come through Duma Council debates before being offered to the entire house, explained the Speaker. MPs are free to speak up on the matter, meanwhile, he acknowledged. The Rodina group faced the house today with a draft statement on Russian developments with terror danger mounting. The statement demanded death penalty reinstated, and general direct ballot introduced to elect the Federation Council, upper house. The Duma resolutely turned the draft down. A mere 89 voted for it, against a threshold 226. There were 33 "no" votes, with none abstaining. The Rodina draft cannot be considered as it has not come through the Duma Council and involved committees, pointed out Oleg Kovalev, procedural and organizational committee head.
