VLADIVOSTOK, January 19, /ITAR-TASS/. What people think about the Duma-passed laws is the best assessment to the Russian State Duma’s work, Sergei Naryshkin, the speaker of the lower house of Russian parliament, said in an NTV televised programme “Results of the Week” (Itogi Nedeli) in reply to a question whether time had come to do away with the lower house of Russian parliament. The question was asked in one of the recent sociological polls.
Another public opinion poll on the popularity of the Russian State Duma revealed that 44% of respondents were satisfied with lawmakers’ work; the reaction of 38 % was negative while only 4% believed that the Duma did a good job.
Naryshkin said that assessing the work of this or that body of state power was an emotional issue. At the same time, Naryshkin described the above-given figures for the State Duma as very high.
“The figures for West European parliaments are much lower but I am not flattering myself. The way the population perceives and assesses the adopted laws is an objective indicator of parliament’s work,” he added.
