GORKI, November 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry has called “a disgrace” the RF government’s work concerning issuing bylaws on the decisions of the RF Constitutional Court.
At a meeting with the deputy prime ministers Medvedev said that he had earlier set the task to analyse the work on the preparation of statutory acts that are envisaged by the federal laws, and also how the decisions of the RF Constitutional Court over the past 10 years have been implemented.
“More than 200 bylaws that are required in accordance with the legislation in effect have not been developed at all. In 58 cases the decisions made by the Constitutional Court have not been implemented - it's a disgrace!” the RF prime minister said.
According to the prime minister, the government should set the example of legal culture. “And the situation that has developed over a rather long time period does not allow the government to set the example,” he pointed out. “Before demanding the proper behaviour from others, it is necessary to take a close look at ourselves.”
“It is necessary to prepare the documents, realising that the statutory acts are not just papers that we were obligated to adopt in accordance with the law, there are interests protected by law and just people’s urgent problems that are behind each of such papers,” the RF government head stressed.
Medvedev instructed the chief of the government staff to submit proposals for the solution of the problem.
