The Russian Supreme Court will consider a complaint by the former State Duma Speaker, Gennady Seleznyov, on Tuesday
Seleznyov, who is now an independent candidate, will argue the Duma’s decision of May 25, 2005, which, he thinks, stripped him of his post of deputy co-chairman of the Inter-Parliamentary Group of the Russian Federation. The resolution was adopted by 324 votes out of required 226. The ex-speaker described the Duma’s decision as politically motivated. Seleznyov claims that it was passed with numerous violations of democratic procedures and technical regulations. “The deputies passed the document without any debate which is wrong. Some kind of discussion ought to have been held,” Seleznyov emphasized. The Inter-Parliamentary Group of the Russian Federation ensures international contacts of the Russian State Duma and the Federation Council. The speakers of both chambers of Russian parliament are the group’s co-chairmen. Former Communist Gennady Seleznyov who occupied the speaker’s post in the Dumas of the second and third convocations became a vice- co-chairman of the Inter-Parliamentary Group of the Russian Federation after he quitted his high Duma post. Alexander Kozlovsky of the United Russia faction succeeded Seleznyov in the post of the vice-chairman of the Russian Inter-Parliamentary Group. The Duma leadership has described Seleznyov’s removal as “simple personnel rotation”.
