MOSCOW, January 10 (Itar-Tass) — The leaders of the opposition movement For Fair Elections now demand a constitutional reform. The government however says such demands are unrealistic.
The organizing committee of For Fair Elections rallies is going to toughen demands to the authorities, ultimately urging for a constitutional reform. This decision is to be officially announced at a first meeting the committee will have in January. The committee’s members, former member of the Russian State Duma with the Just Russia party Dmitry Gudkov, opposition politician Ilya Yashin and nationalist Konstantin Krylov, told the Izvestia newspaper about such plans.
“Now we are discussing with the committee members the demands for a constitutional reform that are to yield an independent court, a strong parliament, and a free television. Apart from that, a reform is needed to divide power branches, Gudkov said.
The reform provides for vesting the parliament with the right to have a say in the formation of the government, for introducing new criteria to form courts, and for creating mechanisms of free television, for distributing authorities.
