MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian State Duma lower parliament house on Friday, June 8, will discuss in the first reading a bill on establishing the Day of Russian Parliamentarism to be marked on April 27, the lower house speaker, Sergei Naryshkin, said on Thursday after a meeting of the Duma Council.
The bill was submitted jointly by the speakers of both houses of the Russian parliament, Sergei Naryshkin of the State Duma, and Valentina Matviyenko of the Federation Council, on May 10.
“The bill proposes to mark April 27 as the Day of Russian Parliamentarism,” Naryshkin said. The day was chosen to commemorate the first session of Russia’s first-ever State Duma, which met at St. Petersburg’s Tavrichensky Palace on April 27, 1906. “As a matter of fact, the Duma was Russia’s first democratic power body,” he noted.
“I believe this national holiday is important for Russia, since it will provoke more attention of society to the work of the national parliament,” Naryshkin said.
Duma’s committee on constitutional legislations has okeyed the bill and recommended the lawmakers to pass it into law in the first reading.
