Organizing the Federal Assembly

Organizing the Federal Assembly

(p.176) Chapter 7 Organizing the Federal Assembly
The Russian Parliament

Thomas F. Remington

Yale University Press

The new Russian constitution and the electoral law determined the general outlines of the structure of the Federal Assembly. The deputies that won in the December 1993 elections adopted specific rules and procedures to govern both chambers of parliament, each of which was organized very differently from one another to reflect their different constitutional status and electoral bases. While the Duma chose a system of party-based power sharing, the Federation Council opted for a simplified system of chairman and committee chairs. This chapter focuses on the organization of the Federal Assembly of Russia. It first provides an overview of the 1993 election and the emergence of deputy factions in the Duma before turning to the adoption of new rules for the Duma and power sharing among the factions. It then discusses the 1995 Duma elections and the Duma's internal structures, legislative procedure, and constitutional reform in 1996–1999.
