The Chechen Parliament in the Duma introduced amendments to the Constitution on the timing of the post of the President of Russia. The document is published in the database of the lower house of Parliament on Friday, may 18.
“At this stage of development, there is a need of extending the tenure of the head of state of one person to three consecutive terms. (…) On the background of the current difficult external political situation, it is important to maintain the continuity of state authority”, — stated in the explanatory note to the bill.
9 may it was reported that the Chechen Parliament has prepared a bill to extend the powers of the President from two to three consecutive terms. A similar initiative previously delivered by the head of the Republic Ramzan Kadyrov. He stressed that current Russian leader Vladimir Putin is no alternative and we must think about the renewal of his term of office.
Press Secretary of the head of state, Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the proposal of the Chechen Parliament, said that “it is not the question on the agenda of the President.”
After the reaction of the representative of the Kremlin, Kadyrov wrote in his Telegram that “it is a question of the people, because the Constitution is taking people, and how the people decide”.
“I fully agree with the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, when he said that this is a constitutional question that is not on the agenda of the Russian President, it is not a question of the state. Of course, it’s not a question of the President too. The fact that he is not on the agenda of the Russian President, we know. But it is a question of the people, because the Constitution takes people, and how people decide, so be it. With all responsibility I declare that the opinion I with anybody did not agree, are not discussed. I just assume that situation which developed today in the world, particularly around our state. (…) In Chechnya there are approximately 1.5 million people. The vast majority of our voters through fair, transparent and popular vote had strong support for political and economic course of Vladimir Putin. The unprecedented level of support he received across the country. So I am sure that the people 100 percent agree with the proposal of extending the stay of one person in office to three consecutive terms. (…) We clearly see that the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has consistently and firmly pursued a policy of development of economy and social sphere, improvement of living standards of the population, strengthening of defense,” — he said (spelling and punctuation of the author saved).
