Governors want to be allowed to run for three consecutive terms or more

Governors are planning to lift the ban on elections for more than two consecutive terms. A new draft law on regional power has been submitted to the State Duma.

As the TASS, the bill also assumes that the powers of the head of the region and the legislative body will last five years (now this period is determined by the subject, but cannot exceed five years). It also provides for a liability mechanism for regional deputies in the form of warning and dismissal.

The grounds for the early termination of the governor's powers due to the loss of the president's confidence have been expanded - the head of state can remove the governor from work for any reason (now this can only be done under a corruption article or in the event of a conflict of interest). In case of loss of confidence, the head of the region will not be able to apply for a similar post for five years.
