    Senators will again respond // Deputies return to the law on the Federation Council the ten-year-old norm

    Published on

    The bill on changing the electoral legislation, adopted by the State Duma on Wednesday in the second reading, at the last moment introduced new amendments to the law “On the Procedure for Forming the Federation Council” (SF). They are talking about the return of the mechanism for recalling senators at the initiative of the regional authorities, which was abolished more than ten years ago. As the authors of the amendments explained, members of the upper house risk losing their powers ahead of schedule, for example, they do not visit their region for a long time, and in the case of a “biased attitude” towards senators, the Federation Council itself will protect them.
