In the “United Russia” has proposed to impose penalties and to exclude from the Duma deputies-truants. Such a proposal was made by Vice-speaker of the state Duma, Secretary of General Council of “United Russia” Sergei Neverov. He also proposed to prohibit proxy voting.
In Saturday interview to the program “Vesti on Saturday” with Sergei Brilev on the TV channel “Russia 1″ Neverov said: “This amendment to the regulations (need) to offer. If the person missed the meeting without good cause was not present, of course, it is necessary to take money from wages. Six plenary meetings per month conducted by our colleagues. If you do not come, one-sixth part (of the salary) it is necessary to take. Did not come again, another one-sixth. Not come for months, it is possible to submit the question of deprivation of office as a Deputy.” (Quoted by TASS.)
Note that the initiative on the expulsion of the absentees were discussed during the previous convocation. The then state Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin supported, although I assumed that the rule will be applied very rarely.
In the week Neverov has prepared amendments to the regulations of the Duma, excluding the provision that permits the transfer of a Deputy of his vote to another MP in connection with absence on session of the state Duma for good reasons. “State Duma Deputy is obliged to participate in meetings, committees in person. To vote in person. The transfer of power of attorney in accordance with our initiative to repeal, any powers of attorney,” said he then.
The state Duma of the seventh convocation were elected in the vote on September 18. Constitutional majority, thanks to a new scheme of voting by proportional system and the single-mandate – is also given to the “United Russia”.
