MOSCOW, April 4 (Itar-Tass) – All lawmakers of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house had declared their 2012 incomes and expenditures by April 2, chairman of the Duma’s relevant commission Nikolai Kovalyov of United Russia said on Thursday.
According to Kovalyov, declarations were received from 447 lawmakers and 714 members of their families (spouses and children). “There seats are still vacant,” he added.
The lawmakers declared their incomes in compliance with the established procedure and their expenditures – in an informal format, since so far there is no officially binding procedure for declaring expenditures.
He reminded of the recent presidential decree obliging all state servants to declare their expenditures.
Under the current Russian laws, lawmakers must declare their incomes for the previous year by April 1. Starting from 2013, lawmakers of both houses of parliament are obliged to declare their large-scale expenditures, too.
