Deputies and Lawmaking in the RSFSR Supreme Soviet

(p.114) Chapter 5 Deputies and Lawmaking in the RSFSR Supreme Soviet
The Russian Parliament

Thomas F. Remington

Yale University Press

Boris Yeltsin's clash with Mikhail Gorbachev, and then with Ruslan Khasbulatov, over the distribution of constitutional powers had important implications for the parliament of Russia. In particular, the deputies elected to the new parliament introduced rules and procedures on legislation that reflected the changing constitutional landscape. This chapter looks at four features of parliamentary organization in the RSFSR Supreme Soviet: deputies' electoral mandates and their parliamentary rights and obligations, standing legislative committees and the lawmaking process, the Presidium's powers of governance, and the rise of deputy groups and factions. It also examines the ways that these institutions were used by deputies for their political and legislative interests.
