GOLOS Association partially supports President’s initiatives on changing laws on elections and political parties

In particular, Association agrees with the statements about the colossal grows of administrative resource and, in particular, its role in the electoral process.

As for the extension of Presidential term to six years and Duma’s – to five years, GOLOS Association repeatedly called for separating Duma and Presidential Elections. However, GOLOS finds proposed terms too long and believes Presidential term can be extended to maximum of 5 years, while State Duma should be elected every four years.

To see Association’s reactions to other legislative changes proposed by the President please see full official statement.
