MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) —— The volume of legislative activity of Russian parliament will grow, Sergei Naryshkin, the speaker of the State Duma lower house of parliament, told on Monday the meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation.
“In the period of time that has passed since the previous meeting of the Board of Trustees we have witnessed and participated in very important social and political events,” he remarked. “First of all, two election campaigns took place. New power has emerged and heightened civic activity was manifested.”
The speaker is sure that there exists now every condition for enhancing “the role of parliament in the affairs of the state and society.” “This is so, first of all for the reason that it is precisely parliament that is called upon, professionally and in the framework of democratic procedures, to transform requests of society into legislative norms,” he said. “It is apparent that the volume of legislative activity will grow,” Naryshkin stressed, noting that the prestige of parliament must be in keeping with this.
