MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s State Duma (the lower house of parliament) Sergey Naryshkin has assumed that Russian President Vladimir Putin will come up with proposals related to both external challenges and internal tasks in his Address to the Federal Assembly on December 3.
Naryshkin noted that "the whole society expected from the president not only relevant and accurate estimates but also actual proposals that will fill up and replenish the agenda of the State Duma in the near future."
"Obviously, these proposals will be linked to both the external challenges, above all, the fight against international terrorism, and to addressing the internal tasks (to stimulate economic growth, support entrepreneurship, protect the rights and freedoms of citizens, legal awareness of Russians, social protection of citizens)," Naryshkin told reporters.
In his opinion, the country’s development requires not only clear priorities but also legally competent management decisions, especially when it comes to federal laws.
