Putin Dissolves Government


www.foxnews.com

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov asked the Kremlin to dissolve his government, Russian news agencies reported, with less than three months remaining before parliamentary elections.

Fradkov made the decision based on "the approaching major political events in the country and a desire to give the president full freedom in making decisions, including personnel," Fradkov was quoted by ITAR-Tass as saying. A Kremlin spokesman could not immediately comment on the report.

Future flow good find.

There are two possibility's the first is that an election has been called and that dissolving the government is standard proceeder.
The second possibility is that Putin is taking another step towards appointing himself the dictator of Russia. Putin is already starting to recreate the Cold War environment which is the last thing that is needed.


Were just going to have to see how this one plays out.

its a normal thing in Russia.

The government tends to resigns before the President elections, allows the Russian President to appoint members who he favours as the next President.

This is nothing odd.

[edit]

The title is misleading, Putin has not dissolved the government. The Russian Prime Minister has resigned and Putin has accepted it.

Russia headed by a dictator and America seemingly mobilizing nuclear action against Iran.

This is not good.


again,

It's not

This is a common thing in Russia before the President elections.

Nothing odd or worrying here.

Yes,

The same thing happens in the United Kingdom. Before a general election, the Prime Minister visits the Head of State, the Queen, and asks her to dissolve parliament.

Not 3 months before elections.

Just what are "approaching major political events".

Not good at all

How though?

This is a normal thing in most parliamentary systems. All Putin will do is appoint new members to the government who he favours, one of them will be the candidate he wants to become the next President of the Russian Federation.

Nothing odd.

Again,

Read what I've been posting.

The Russian President will appoint new members to the government. It was the Russian Prime Minister who resigned the government.

Why are you trying to make a doom and gloom story when this is a normal practice?

It's a normal constitutional practice for their republic.

He can't.

The Russian President is ruled by the Constitution, like the US President. Putin has ruled out running for President again, even though members of his party want him to.

Putin hasn't altered the Constitution of Russia.

He will now nominate new cabinet ministers.

Everyone, read this...problem solved.

I've just been reading the Russian Constitution.



Article 116

The Government of the Russian Federation shall resign before a newly-elected President of the Russian Federation.

Article 117

1. The Government of the Russian Federation may offer to resign and the President of the Russian Federation either shall accept or reject the resignation.

2. The President of the Russian Federation may take a decision on the resignation of the Government of the Russian Federation.


www.constitution.ru...

no need to be scared now.

Stop being condescending, it's very annoying


I've obviously read what you posted, I just think that dissolving parliament 3 months before elections seems slightly suspicious, especially in light of current Russian posturing.

And the government is staying in place until Putin has appointed a new one.

Freeborn

Have you even bothered to look at my last post? I showed evidence from the Russian Constitution that this is a legal requirement.

So, I don't see how it's suspicious.

Why can't you see that?

And, the government is staying in place until it's replacement has been confirmed by the Russian Parliament.
