MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Communist Party plans to initiate a vote of no-confidence in the government over accelerated reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the first deputy speaker of the State Duma and first deputy head of the Communist Party’s central committee, Ivan Melnikov, told reporters on Monday.
“The Communist Party’s faction plans to initiate a vote of no-confidence in the government over accelerated consideration of the bill reforming the Russian Academy of Sciences,” he said. “I think that we will discuss this issue at the faction’s presidium.”
“Everything what is going on has exhausted our patience,” Melnikov said.
He added that 90 votes are needed to bring a no-confidence motion.
“We have these votes,” Melnikov said.
The council of the lower house of parliament recommended to consider the bill reforming the Russian Academy of Sciences in the first reading on July 5.
