All of them, as noted by Fedotov, made a choice and will work accordingly in the state Duma and in the OP.
“To reduce the number of members the HRC is offered, because in the presidential decree and regulations of the Board doesn’t say anywhere what should be the size of the Board. But in the regulations of the Board now says, who cannot be a Board member – cannot be the deputies of the state Duma and members of the Public chamber. It is the proposal to remove these people from the Council and I introduced the head of state. The corresponding letter was sent this morning,” Fedotov said on Tuesday.
“In my report any suggestions for the replacement of outgoing members of the Council not,” he said.
As for the question of who will head the permanent Commission of the HRC for the development of NGOs after the Council leaves the current head of the Commission Yelena Topoleva-Soldunova, the Agency interlocutor noted: “the issue will be for the Council to decide at its next meeting”.
“Most likely, it will be a meeting on the law on NGOs, which will take place on 10 February,” added the head of the HRC.
He also said that the cooperation of the Council with those who come from his part, will not cease. “This does not mean that we will cease to cooperate with them. We have many former members of the Council remained as experts,” — said Fedotov.
