Russians will be able to vote against all amendments to the Constitution

The voting form for amendments to the Constitution will be drawn up taking into account such an option as “against all amendments”.

This became known from an interview with a radio station. "TVNZ" gave the head of the State Duma Committee on Legislation, co-chair of the working group on the preparation of amendments Pavel Krasheninnikov.

Given the enormous significance for a country that has a vote on amendments to the Constitution, such a clause will avoid ambiguous interpretations of the result of this procedure.

As follows from the statement of the Council of Federations, the main principles that will be put at the forefront during the voting will be openness and transparency.

Recall that earlier the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov explained that if the result of the vote turns out to be negative, then amendments to the main law will not enter into force.

Among the issues that will be put to a popular vote will be the expansion of the powers of the State Duma, the priority of Russian legislation over international law, and the tightening of requirements for presidential candidates.

For the first time, amendments to the Fundamental Law of the Russian Federation were proposed by the head of state Vladimir Putin during a message to the Federal Assembly on January 15.

    If an amendment is proposed to vote prohibiting government officials from having dual citizenship, or a residence permit in other countries, the likelihood that a preponderance of the “against all amendments” option will be organized can increase significantly.

    Can one vote against individual amendments? Somehow, all this does not look very good, and inspires certain thoughts. Why do I need to vote by package?

    To be honest, after the execution of the Supreme Soviet, this Constitution must be abolished! And so "the game is not worth the candle."

    There is nothing particularly important for an ordinary person. Everything is for politicians and politics. The parliament is getting stronger, the president’s opportunities are decreasing. All this does not affect the life of the people.

    Why are you soaring? As always, everyone will "vote" FOR with a "significant" advantage. After a "vote" to which NOBODY will come, Putin will congratulate all Russians for "making the right choice" ...
