MOSCOW, April 26 (Itar-Tass) - The protection of children’s rights, as well as the progress of fulfilment of the head of state’s decrees of May 7, 2012 on the main directions of the country’s development will be discussed on Friday at a meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin with members of the presidium of the Council of Legislators, the Kremlin press service reported.
“The meeting will discuss issues related to the implementation of the RF president’s state-of-the-nation address to the Federal Assembly, the presidential May decrees, the protection of children’s rights, including orphans and children left without parental care,” the press service said.
The councils of legislators that existed since 2002 separately in the upper and lower houses of parliament, last year were merged into a unified advisory body. In December 2012, Putin took part in the first meeting of the unified Council.
The work of the Council of Legislators is organised and directed by the presidium of the Council of Legislators. It consists of the speaker of the Federation Council and representatives of legislative bodies of each of the seven federal districts.
The Council of Legislators meets at least twice a year to discuss the development of the federal and regional legislation. In particular, its regular meeting was held on Thursday.
