MOSCOW, September 24 (Itar-Tass) — All factions support an initiative on providing free access to inquiries of deputies, secretary of the United Russia General Council, deputy speaker Sergei Neverov told journalists on Monday.
Neverov said this issue had been discussed at the session of the State Duma Council. “The United Russia party and other factions agreed that if such norm was approved, this will make the work of the parliament opener,” the lawmaker said.
“Electors will be able to get information in free access. This will remove many issues to people’s deputies and help increase the efficiency of deputies’ work,” he explained.
According to Neverov, State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin instructed the Committee for Constitutional Legislation and State Construction and the Rules Committee to study all issues related to free access to deputies’ inquiries.
Neverov commented on this issue last week while talked about KPRF deputy Anatoly Lokot. State Duma deputies speaker, Sergei Zhelezhnyak (United Russia) and Igor Lebedev (LDPR), sent an inquiry to the Prosecutor General’s Office to check and give a legal assessment to the Communist’s actions. Parliamentarians believe that their colleague can violate the law on the status of a deputy.
According to Zhelezhnyak, in the letter to head of the Federal Accreditation Service Savva Shipov Lokot asked “to solve the problem related to accreditation of the Siberian Federal Health Centre, which should deal with certifying foodstuffs and dietary supplements”.Lokot names these accusations as “throwing dirt”. “I’m very displeased with justifying what I haven’t done. I haven’t done business and I’m ready to present all documents and corresponding information,” he told Itar-Tass.
