What does Zorkin hint at, suggesting to make "pointed changes" to the constitution? Georgy Bovt's comment


Georgy Bovt.
The chairman of the Constitutional court of the Russian Federation has published article in Rossiyskaya Gazeta about "disturbing appeals to cardinal constitutional reforms" in which I have noted a distortion towards executive power Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS the Chairman of the Constitutional court of the Russian Federation Valery Zorkin has published big program article in Rossiyskaya Gazeta. In her he has expressed opinion that in the Russian constitution there are separate shortcomings which can be corrected by "pointed changes". A lack of the present document, according to Zorkin, is "the list in favor of an executive branch of the power, insufficient clearness in distribution of powers between the president and the government". Why article has drawn such attention? Georgy Bovt argues on it. The chairman of the Constitutional court of the Russian Federation not often makes program articles, but every time of his publication attract interest: like, what was actually meant by highly experienced Valery Zorkin? This time he addresses problems of political freedoms and pluralism, introducing the idea that "real democracy is most effectively provided with two-party system". Zorkin and questions of social justice lifts. It is curious that approximately Zorkin stated the same problems in several program performances in 2007-2008 when the issue of amendments to the constitution for the purpose of increase in term of government of the president and powers of parliament was discussed. It is unlikely today freedoms have excited the head of the Constitutional court. He introduces the idea that the country constitution is still far from implementation of provisions of article 7 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation where it is told that "The Russian Federation is a social state" also again. However, he right there makes a reservation that persons interested to pass a way of radical constitutional reform think superficially. Then the thought of desirability of "pointed changes" is also thrown in information space. Among "separate shortcomings" which can be corrected "pointwise" Zorkin mentions article 12 allowing to oppose local governments and the government. Also he points to insufficient clearness in determination of the status of Presidential Administration and also on "insufficient clearness in distribution of powers between the president and the government". As it is more accurate to distribute powers between the president and the government it is possible only in favor of the government because in favor of the president there is simply nothing to redistribute, in this passage sending to discussions about a possibility of transition is seen in Russia to the parliamentary republic. Valery Zorkin's article has appeared along with publications that in a subsoil of the Kremlin administration the project of the constitutional reform which is designed to resolve an issue of in what form Vladimir Putin will influence political processes in the country after the expiration of his presidential powers in 2024 prepares. "The problem of 2024" exists and is realized at the highest political level. Though Ways
