MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — The State Duma is planning to discuss presidential draft laws on political reforms in February, State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin said.
At the end of December just after his address to the Federal Assembly the Russian head of state submitted two draft laws to the lower house of parliament – on easing the procedure for creating and registering political parties and on cancelling signatures collection to allow political parties to take part in the elections and reducing their number for presidential elections, Naryshkin told journalists on Thursday.
“These draft laws are likely to be submitted to the State Duma in three readings in February,” the speaker said.
Totally, Duma lawmakers should debate about 600 draft laws while 53 documents are of priority importance, Naryshkin stressed.
