(p.1) Chapter 1 Political Representation and Parliamentary Power
The Russian Parliament

Yale University Press

This book examines the emergence of Russia's parliament between 1989 and 1999, a period that can be divided into three phases. The first phase began in 1989, when a new legislative structure designed by Mikhail Gorbachev replaced the old Supreme Soviet, and ended in August 1991 following the coup and the subsequent breakup of the Soviet Union. The second phase spanned 1990–1993, characterized by an interim legislature under the Russian Republic (Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic, or RSFSR) that ended in 1993. The third phase began in December 1993, when a new Federal Assembly was created following Boris Yeltsin's forcible dissolution of parliament in September of that year, and remains in force today. The book focuses on the emergence of parliamentary parties and bicameralism between 1989 and 1999 and explores how they contributed to the stabilization of political conflict in Russia.

Keywords:   parliament, Mikhail Gorbachev, Soviet Union, legislature, Federal Assembly, Boris Yeltsin, parliamentary parties, bicameralism, political conflict, Russia
