MOSCOW, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - The Communist Party of Russia plans to initiate a no confidence vote against the government in late August-early September, the party’s deputy chairman and Duma deputy speaker Ivan Melnikov said on Monday.
“We will get strong support of the society and will submit the document for consideration in late August-early September,” he said.
Communists’ leader Gennady Zyuganov said his party prepared a substantiated ten-point conclusion on the need for the Cabinet’s resignation.
The document has already been signed by 101 parliamentarians and the Communist Party is ready to put it on public discussion.
“We’ve officially taken a decision to put it on nationwide discussion” and to submit to the State Duma “taking into account opinions of citizens, business circles and scientific community,” Zyuganov said.
“We are ready to initiate it already tomorrow, but we hope for wide support of citizens,” he said.
Last week the Communist Party announced it started a process to bring on a no confidence vote following the reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Under the Russian Constitution the State Duma may pass a no confidence vote against the government. This decision is taken by the majority of votes from the total number of MPs. There are 450 legislators in the lower house. After MPs pass a no confidence vote the president has the right to announce the government’s resignation or disagree with the State Duma. If within three months the lower house of parliament repeatedly holds a no confidence vote, the president will announce the government’s resignation or dissolve the State Duma.
