UFA, 16 October 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Arina Rakhimkulova/. The Chairman of the State Assembly of Bashkortostan Konstantin Tolkachev held a session of the Commission of the Legislators Council on legislative support of national security and anti-corruption. The event addressed the issues of anti-corruption legislation.
Konstantin Tolkachev noted that although the current anti-corruption legislation in Russia is rather systematic it would be necessary to improve it constantly, considering the current level of public relations.
According to Konstantin Tolkachev, an active role in this process is played by the parliament of Bashkortostan. Recently the State Duma considered and adopted in the first reading the bill "On Amendments to Article 125 of the Federal Law" On Combating Corruption" proposed to consider by the State Assembly of Bashkortostan.
Participants of the session discussed new anti-corruption laws, which specify the terminology and remove ambiguities in the existing legislation, as well as expand the list of officials who are subject to limitations and restrictions established by federal anti-corruption laws.
Konstantin Tolkachev said that since the beginning of 2015, the Commission received six draft legislative initiatives from the five regional parliaments. On two of them it was decided to recommend them for submission to the State Duma.
On the same day, Konstantin Tolkachev took part in the meeting of legislators of the Federal Assembly of Russia, dedicated to the 110th anniversary of the Manifesto of October 17, 1905. Participants of the session noted that the Manifesto on improvement of public order, proclaimed freedom of conscience, expression, association and assembly, access to the State Duma elections regardless of social status and material status, mandatory approval of new laws by the parliament.
