The Kremlin reacted to the refusal of Tatarstan to change the status of the president


The State Council (parliament) of Tatarstan opposed the renaming of the position of the president of the republic – the Kremlin said that they respect such a position.

The corresponding draft federal law “On general principles of organizing public power in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation”, sent by the State Duma, was rejected by the legislative body of Tatarstan the day before.

The Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the decision of the parliamentarians of Tatarstan, said that this is an opinion on the bill as part of the work on the bill.

“Of course, we respect the opinion of each of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, but this is one of the opinions that, of course, will be taken into account when continuing to work on this bill,” said Peskov.

Peskov drew attention to the fact that this assessment is not a final de jure decision.

“This is exactly the opinion that was expressed. And it is noteworthy that different opinions are expressed within the framework of the workflow. They will all be taken into account, ”the press secretary of the Russian president assured.

Last month, some members of the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament, drafted a bill at the federal level to use the name of the highest administrator in the regions that make up the Russian Federation.

The bill provided that the top leaders of the regions that make up the federation would be called “heads”. In addition, the law lifts the ban on electing the president of a constituent entity twice in a row, setting the maximum term of his office at 5 years, depending on the region.

The State Council of the Republic of Tatarstan (parliament of Tatarstan) at a meeting held the day before did not adopt the bill. 82 out of 100 deputies voted against the document.
