Russian parliament unanimously supports Putin's reform of the constitution



The LOWER House of the Russian Parliament unanimously gave initial support to the far-reaching constitutional changes proposed by President Vladimir Putin, which are seen as an attempt to strengthen his influence after his term expires.

The reforms, introduced by Putin last week, supported all 432 lawmakers in attendance. No one voted against or abstained.



The Duma is controlled by the ruling pro-Putin United Russia Party.

According to analysts, the constitutional changes will open up space for Putin to retain influence when his term expires in 2024, though he said over the weekend that he did not support the Soviet practice of lifelong leaders.

The Russian constitution has not been amended for over 25 years

The reform envisages a reduction of broad presidential powers and a strengthening of parliamentary powers.

Putin has not yet revealed what his plans are after he leaves the Kremlin.

Before becoming law, constitutional amendments must be passed by the lower house in two more readings, followed by the upper house and considered by regional parliaments. Eventually, Putin must sign it.

The Russian constitution has not been amended since 1993, and Putin said the reform should be put to the referendum as well.
