The Russian Parliament

Yale University Press

This chapter examines how the politicians elected to Mikhail Gorbachev's parliament in 1989 used the limited powers they had to influence policy through legislation. It looks at the relation between deputies' electoral mandates and their participation in the Supreme Soviet, its two chambers, and the parent congress, as well as the standing legislative committees and legislative procedure. It also describes the Presidium's governance of the entire system and the formation of deputy groups. Aside from the smaller Supreme Soviet, Gorbachev's two-tiered legislature included a larger Congress of People's Deputies consisting of 2,250 deputies.

Keywords:   parliament, Mikhail Gorbachev, legislation, electoral mandates, Supreme Soviet, standing legislative committees, Presidium, legislature, Congress of People's Deputies, deputies
