MOSCOW, October 12 (Itar-Tass) — The speaker of the Russian Federation Council upper house of parliament, Valentina Matviyenko, plans to finish reorganization of the upper house by the end of the year.

“At the present day, there are 27 committees and commissions in the Federation Council in the Federation Council. And there are only 166 of us,” she said. Accordingly, many senator groups are understaffed. Issues cannot be considered efficiently that way, and this “results in low efficiency,” she stressed. However, Matviyenko admits that the issue of cutting committees and commissions is “painful”.

Matviyenko’s offers will be distributed among the senators on Wednesday. On Friday, there will be a session with the chairpersons of upper house’s committees and commissions, where these initiatives will be discussed. “I want it to be an open work,” the speaker stressed.

The staff of the Federation Council will also face restructuring and cuts. Matviyenko plans to finish this work before the end of the year. “We will devote a special session to that, and we will begin working in a new mode starting from January 1,” the speaker said.
