Monitoring of the Federal Legislation dated 16.01.2003

Federal Law No. 19-FZ of January 10, 2003 on the Election of the President of the Russian Federation

The new Law takes account of the provisions of the Laws on the main guarantees of electoral rights and the right to participate in the referendum of the citizens of the Russian Federation and on political parties.
The Law preserves the actual majority election system envisaging that election of the President of the Russian Federation may be carried out in two ballots.
However, in view of the creation of the legislative base providing for the participation of political parties in the election, the Law contains some innovations. In particularly, it sets forth the requirements to electoral blocks taking part in the election. The electoral block must include at least one political party. Together with it, there may be also other all-Russia public associations created in the form of a public organisation and public movement. The mentioned public associations may not take part in the election of the President of the Russian Federation independently.
The self-nominated candidate, as well as the political party or electoral block having nominated the candidate must collect at least two million signatures of the electorate in favour of the nominee, which is two times as great as the number required under the previous Law, with the number of signatures of the electorate per subject of the Russian Federation being reduced from 70,000 to 50,000.
The Federal Law is entered into force from the day of its official publication.
