NOVO-OGAREVO, April 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The concept of a law requiring the State Duma to discuss public initiatives support through the Internet will be ready by this autumn, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.
“The concept of the draft law should be prepared by autumn. There will also be serious technical questions to be solved, such as determining the Internet site for registering and discussing initiatives, as well as a mechanism for authorisation of people who have supported certain proposals,” Putin said at a meeting that focused on the implementation of the tasks set in his election article “Democracy and the Quality of the State”.
The idea of the draft law is that the State Duma will be required to discuss people’s initiatives that have collected 100,000 authorised signatures on the Internet.
“We are creating a really working mechanism for Russian public initiatives,” Putin said.
