MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 16th January, 2020) As the expected amendments to the Russian constitution will increase the role of the parliament, they should also envision a more important role for the prime minister and bolster his status, Accounts Chamber Chairman Alexey Kudrin has told Sputnik, commenting on the recent proposals by President Vladimir Putin.
Putin delivered his annual address to the country's parliament on Wednesday, during which he proposed that the lower house choose the candidature of the prime minister instead of just approving the president's choice. After that, the entire Russian government resigned to provide the president with the opportunity to implement the changes.
