As reported on his Facebook page by State Duma deputy Oleg Shein (“Fair Russia”), as of July 11, 51 governors and 40 regional legislative assemblies sent positive comments on the bill on pension reform to the lower house of parliament (by today this figure has certainly grown ). At the same time, the deputy notes, some of the reviews of the legislative assemblies can be ignored, since In a number of cases, the project was discussed not at the plenary meeting (in full, in compliance with the quorum), but at meetings of the relevant committees.
In different regions, approval of reviews takes place in different ways. Recall that they are collected before July 17, when a meeting of the State Duma Committee on Labor and Social Policy can be held devoted to the bill, at which the document should be recommended for adoption on first reading (according to preliminary data, it may pass on July 19).We present to you a collection of regional cases published by Kommersant.
In many legislative assemblies, the deputies have already managed to go on "holidays", therefore in some regions they decided not to give feedback, because at this time, it is difficult to gather a sufficient number of deputies for a quorum at a meeting of the legislative assembly or even a specialized committee. However, in a number of regions it was possible to hold extraordinary plenary meetings specifically to discuss the draft law and approve revocation. So did the heads of regional council in the Kurgan and Tomsk regions.
In the Belgorod region, they also decided to call deputies from vacations, where the meeting was scheduled for July 16. so did the Kursk Regional Duma - there the deputies will meet today, July 13. The head of the Communist Party faction, Alexander Anpilov, notes that, most likely, the leadership of the regional Duma forced it to do: I was notified of this by e-mail. " He clarified that he did not have time to return to the meeting: "But our guys will come and vote against, of course."
As we have already said, in some legislative assemblies there were no plenary sessions. So, from the Sverdlovsk region in the State Duma three positive reviews from three committees of the legislative assembly of the region went at once - budget, social and regional policy. All three documents were adopted on July 12th. And in the Ulyanovsk region, instead of recall, they sent a decision of the legislative council, in which "it is recognized that it is necessary to take measures to change the pension system." The Ulyanovsk deputies are planning to meet no earlier than July 25 for their first meeting after the holidays. The same path was followed in Yakutia: the project was considered not at a plenary meeting on July 3 (apparently to avoid public protests from opposition MPs), but at the Council of the State Assembly (Il Tumen) of the Sakha Republic on July 9. The result was a positive review with recommendations that boil down to maximally preserving the old retirement conditions for residents of the Far North. Those. on the one hand, the project is supported, and on the other hand, if these recommendations are heeded, almost all residents of Yakutia will not feel the consequences of the reform.
There are also regions in which a rather difficult situation has developed around the discussion of pension reform. In Tatarstan, the project was considered a committee of the regional parliament on social policy. As a result, raising the retirement age was recognized as “expedient”. However, in parallel with this, republican trade unions have collected more than 29 thousand signatures under an appeal to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, in which they demand to refuse to raise the retirement age, calling the initiative "antisocial" and "harmful for the Russian economy."
The Primorsky Territory unexpectedly became the second “difficult” region: the regional legislature accepted a positive review, but Nakhodka’s Duma voted unanimously against it. Earlier, deputies from Nakhodka sent a letter to Vyacheslav Volodin stating the need to develop a set of economic measures that would raise the standard of living of Russians and also solve the problem of filling the Pension Fund without raising the retirement age. The letter also notes: "State authorities should not make decisions that infringe the rights of citizens.In addition, social norms and guarantees achieved in the past should not deteriorate. "
In the Legislative Assembly of the Leningrad Region, the bill was approved at the plenary session, but only by the faction of the EP. This was due to the fact that United Russia proposed not to discuss the project and immediately vote for the approval of a positive response, because, according to the chairman of the faction Oleg Popov, the document was already "discussed in detail at the meetings of the commissions." In response, the head of the LDPR faction, Andrei Lebedev, was indignant: “Why, then, is our presence here at all?”, After which all three opposition factions - the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, the LDPR and the SR - with their full complement left the meeting room.
Almost without discussion, cost and in the Krasnodar Territory. Yuri Burlachko, the speaker of the regional legislative assembly, asked the deputies to express their opinions “more efficiently”, saying: “We discussed pension reform with the public, and I assure you that there is not a single person who would support the current situation in the pension system. We support the government’s initiative and understand that this is an unpopular decision. Yes, we share this responsibility with the federal authorities. "
Sergey Sukharev, a deputy of the Kurgan City Duma, a member of the political council of the Kurgan city branch of the United Russia party, shares his opinion on pension reform: “Pension reform is necessary, it is impossible without it, and there are plenty of arguments here. The main issue is preparation. First of all, I mean the legal documents. There are a lot of comments and they come in from all sides. We communicate with the population and provide all the necessary information. <...> I can say that it is not necessary to heat up the situation. Heren that all wishes will be taken into account, everyone understands that otherwise the adoption of the reform will be difficult. "
Political analyst Rais Suleimanov (Kazan) is skeptical about the reform: “Given the average age of men’s lives and the fact that the situation with the medical care and ecology in the country is not improving, it’s hard to believe that the majority will live to retirement. Retirement is an opportunity to rest and have some kind of income that allows older people, if not to live, then at least to exist. <...> The level of people's distrust of reform is very high.
United Russia will certainly support innovation.At the same time, the party of power cannot bring convincing arguments. <...>
In Tatarstan, as in all regions of Russia, deputies from United Russia voted "for". There is no singularity and uniqueness. Although the population is outraged strongly. <...>
Reform will be adopted in any case. Perhaps we will offer some mitigating measures. "
Political analyst Rodion Murtazin (Saransk) believes that raising the retirement age is inevitable regardless of the opinion of the population: "The demographic situation, the situation on the labor market, support for the DPR and the LPR, fighting in Syria, the economic situation as a whole - all this leaves no alternative to the upcoming retirement age .
The low level of wages in Russia (less than 25 thousand rubles for half of those employed), which serves as the basis for contributions to the Pension Fund is one of the main reasons for the deficit of the Pension Fund of Russia. Half of all the fees of the FIU are provided by only 10 million of the highest paid employees. 10 million Russians contain 21 million pensioners. 42 million pay as much as 10 million of the highest paid employees, which contain half of the pensioners. <...>
The sovereign power of Russia have their price. And it will have to pay. Certainly, the regions (more precisely, their elites) will support all the pension innovations of the federal center, and the opinion of the population deprived of political subjectivity is, in general, not particularly important. Otherwise, he would have been listened to before. And therefore, probably, some coherent and logical argument from the EP, explaining the reasons for raising the retirement age, is not heard or it is not particularly intelligible. "
Well, something like this.
