Monitoring of the Federal Legislation dated 16.06.2003

Decision of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation of June 11, 2003 on the Case of Constitutionality of the Federal Constitutional Law on the Amendments to the Federal Constitutional Law on the Referendum of the Russian Federation

The applicants claim that the adoption of the given Law increases the period prohibiting the initiative of the referendum and the referendum itself, which is in violation of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, in particular, its Articles 3, 16, 32, 55. The request pertains only to the referendum initiated by the citizens of the Russian Federation.
The Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation recognised the mentioned Federal Constitutional Law, inasmuch as it specifies the period prohibiting the citizens to initiate a referendum of the Russian Federation and the referendum itself, as not contradicting the Constitution of the Russian Federation, since the period permitting the citizens to initiate a referendum of the Russian Federation and directly participate in it must be at least two years long, so as to permit an opportunity to arrange at least two referendums within the four year long election cycle.
The Constitutional Court proceeded from the fact that the periods permitting the citizens to show their free will at elections of the federal bodies of state power and referendums of the Russian Federation must be commensurable.
The Decision is entered into force immediately after annunciation.
