MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Communist Party has called on the State Duma, lower house of Russian parliament, to sack the government led by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev as soon as possible.

Having named his party’s claims to Dmitry Medvedev over his decisions taken as president and prime minister, parliamentarian Nikolai Ryabov said: “The faster the State Duma dismisses the Cabinet led by Dmitry Medvedev, the faster the country will take the path towards economic growth.”

Communists said in July they had collected a necessary number of signatures to initiate a no-confidence vote against the government, but had not brought forward this motion yet.

Last week leader of the Communist Party of Russia Gennady Zyuganov expressed the hope that the Russian government would be sacked soon after the Winter Olympic Games in the Black Sea resort of Sochi in 2014.

Initially, a bill reforming the Russian Academy of Sciences forced the Communist Party to launch this initiative. However, later Zyuganov announced his ten reasons for the government’s resignation, including inadequate economic and financial policy, predatory privatization, accession to the World Trade Organization on disadvantageous for Russia conditions, reduction of social guarantees and the lack of economic growth.
