MPs Refuse To Review Public Initiatives

Vladimir Pligin, from the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, said there is currently no procedure in place that would make public initiatives eligible for review by the national parliament. 

The petition was posted on the website of the opposition newspaper, Novaya Gazeta, co-owned by billionaire Alexander Lebedev and last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, after the State Duma approved the so-called Dima Yakovlev law in second reading.

The newspaper managed to get 100,000 signatures before the third reading, but the MPs ignored the petition and approved the bill.

Novaya Gazeta protested the move referring to the decree signed by the Russian president on May 7, 2012 that calls on legislators to put on their agenda public initiatives that gather more than 100,000 signatures.
