Communists Push For Coalition Govt With Cabinet Posts Shared – 13 January 2015

RT logoA senior Communist Party MP has revealed plans to propose a bill that would radically change the way Russia’s government forms its Cabinet and give the parliamentary opposition a way to share power.

The bill has been already verified by legal experts and sent to other State Duma factions, deputy chairman of the Communist Party’s Central Committee, Valery Rashkin, told the Tass news agency. He noted that the intention of the move was to attract more sponsors to the motion. “We want the draft law to be submitted not only from the Communist Party caucus,” Rashkin said adding that he expected the bill to be submitted to the Lower House as early as January.

The draft suggests changing how governments are formed in Russia to make it obligatory that all parliamentary parties can nominate their candidates for the ministers’ posts, proportionally to their representation in the Lower House, the State Duma. The parliamentary majority party would get only one guaranteed post, that of prime minister. The candidates for government posts can be MPs or from outside parliament.
