MOSCOW, July 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has given a week for the finalisation of the draft law on education. He set the deadline at Thursday’s meeting of the RF government.
“I propose to approve the bill as a whole,” he said, “and give a week for refining the nuances, after which I will introduce it to the State Duma.”
Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said earlier at the meeting that the Finance Ministry in general supports the draft law on education, but requests to postpone the introduction of the document to the State Duma, in order to coordinate a number of clauses.
“We generally support this bill, we have worked with the Ministry of Education, but some points require further discussion,” he said. “And we ask before sending this bill to the Duma to meet once again, discuss, finally decide and then form the final version of the law,” said Siluanov.
According to him, there are some contradictions concerning the delimitation of authority between the federal centre and the subjects of the Russian Federation. “We need to comply with certain requirements of Law No 184 “On the Delimitation of Authority” without violating the RF sphere of interests,” said the finance minister.
