China News Service, December 21. According to a report from the Russian Satellite Network on the 21st, Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the signing of the membership of the Russian Federation’s State Council, under his personal leadership. The corresponding laws and regulations were published on the official legal information portal. The decree will take effect on December 21, the date of signing.
According to previous reports, Russian President Putin approved the establishment of the State Council in 2000. According to relevant regulations, the State Council is an organization that discusses, coordinates, and consults important matters, and can make suggestions to the President.
In January 2020, Putin proposed to amend the constitution to strengthen the status of the Council of State. On December 2, the Russian Federation Council (the upper house of parliament) passed the “Law on the State Council of the Russian Federation.”
The bill stipulates that the State Council of the Russian Federation will be headed by the President. Its members include the prime minister, the chairman of the Federal Council, the chairman of the State Duma (lower house of parliament), the director of the president’s office and the chief executives of various regions. In addition, according to the President’s decision, the members of the Council of State may also include representatives of political parties, representatives of local governments and others who have seats in the State Duma.
The bill also stipulates that the State Council will participate in the formulation of Russia’s domestic and foreign policies, discuss the draft budget and personnel policies, and may make resolutions requesting amendments to the legislation, but has no right to propose legislative proposals.Return to Sohu to see more
