MOSCOW, July 3. /TASS/. The potential of Russian parliamentarism is not being used fully, speaker of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house Sergei Naryshkin said on Friday.
"Our convocation had the honour to prove that the potential of parliamentarism in Russia is rather high. But it is not being fully used," he said, adding that the confidence of society to the State Duma was growing.
He cited the results of opinion polls conducted by the VCIOM polling agency that demonstrated that approval of the State Duma activities stood at about 50%. "It means that given all the objective and subjective criticism, the general vector of our activities is right, it is in the interests of our voters," he said and thanked the lawmakers for their hard work in the past six months.
Russia’s State Duma lower parliament house has completed its spring session of the sixth convocation on Friday.
Closing the session, State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshnkin said the spring session had yielded about 280 laws.
He said that the lower parliament house continued to work on the bills it had inherited from previous convocations. Thus, more than 170 such bills had been considered during the 2015 spring session, he noted. "Whereas there used to be more than 1,200 such bills, now we have about 300," Naryshkin said.
