By Ivan Rodin, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, June 22, 2001
The Duma approved the law on political parties at its third reading; it will now be submitted to the Federation Council. However, it is not ruled out that the Federation Council may reject it: then this law would have to be reconsidered by the lower house. The Duma would have to continue working on this law together with the upper house, as only 238 deputies voted for it, whereas at least 300 votes are required to override a Federation Council veto.


Fists fly as Duma approves land bill
By Yevgenia Borisova, The Moscow Times, June 18, 2001, p. 1
The State Duma passed the Land Code in an emotionally charged first reading Friday that saw lawmakers chant, come to blows and whole factions march out en masse. The Duma voted 251-22 with three abstentions in favor of the Kremlin-backed code, which would allow the sale of commercial land and plots in cities and villages to Russians and foreigners. The sale of agricultural land is not provided for in the code and will be dealt with in a separate law. The legislation must pass two more readings in the Duma and then be approved by the Federation Council before it can be sent to President Vladimir Putin to be signed into law.
