MOSCOW, November 21 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian president will deliver a state-of-the-nation address to the Federal Assembly after the December 4 elections in the State Duma, State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov said on Monday.
“The fifth State Duma will not be able to listen to the presidential state-of-the-nation address. This will be done already in the sixth State Duma,” he said in reply to a question from journalists on an expected date of the state-of-the-nation address. “This is not a question to the State Duma,” he added.
The State Duma has earlier posted in its electronic database a draft resolution to delay a plenary meeting from November 23 to 24. The president was expected to deliver a state-of-the-nation address to the Federal Assembly on the day. However, several media reported on Monday that a traditional presidential state-of-the-nation address to the lawmakers may be postponed and will be probably held already after the State Duma elections.
Meanwhile, State Duma First Vice-Speaker Oleg Morozov told Itar-Tass on Monday that the plenary meeting is scheduled for November 23. “Yes, it is,” he said in reply to a question whether a traditional plenary meeting is scheduled on Wednesday.
Oleg Morozov also put it clearly that the president will most likely not deliver a state-of-the-nation address on November 23.
