MOSCOW, April 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Communist Party is set to have the country’s leaders agree to form a coalition government, otherwise the part would initiate no-confidence in the current cabinet, deputy chairman of the party’s central committee and member of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Valery Rashkin told Itar-Tass on Monday after a meeting of the central committee.
The Communist party, he said, plans to “give the most harsh assessment of the work of the current government” on April 17, when Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev reports about the government’s work to the State Duma. “We will insist on bilateral consultations with the president and the prime minister. We will insist on forming a coalition government of national confidence, and we are ready to take part in such government. Otherwise, we reserve the right to initiate the procedure of the government’s resignation,” he said.
Under the Russian constitution, the State Duma may pass a no-confidence vote to the government but a relevant resolution that is submitted to the president shall be passed by the majority vote.
