MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - A bill, which cancels the lifetime ban to convicts for grave crimes to be elected, is submitted in the State Duma lower house of Russian parliament on Thursday. The United Russia faction headed by chairman of the State Duma committee for constitutional legislation and state construction Vladimir Pligin has drafted the amendments, the staff of the lower house of parliament told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
According to the amendments, people sentenced to imprisonment for grave crimes, except for the cases, when these offences are not found as grave crimes under the new Criminal Code, cannot run in elections for ten years since the day the conviction is expunged. For the convicts jailed for heinous crimes this term makes 15 years.
