Most media deputies of the State Duma of the new convocation was the Vice-speaker Irina Yarovaya and Deputy Chairman of the security Committee, former Prosecutor of the Crimea Natalia Polonskaya (both from the faction “United Russia”). Such conclusions made in the study “the Coefficient of utility of deputies of the state Duma” Internet portal “Member Club”. The authors studied the activity of parliamentarians from October 2016 to February 2017.
According to study co-author political analyst Alexei Martynov, for the evaluation of media MPs they used the data “Medialogia” and MediaMetrics, which took into account not only the performances of the parliamentarians in the media, but also their activity and the mentioning in social networks, and also the appearance in the TV spots.
Most of the media, the research, was Vice-speaker of the Spring, on the second place — former Crimean Prosecutor. Closes the three leaders of United Russia Sergei Neverov. This media attention has less to do with his position, but with the way Poklonski, Martynov said. Earlier, Poklonskaya said on erotocism the bust of Nicholas II and played “whiskers” on the Russian TV show.
The popularity of Spring and Neverov expert associates with their activity not only in the Duma, but also on the Federal agenda.
The top ten also were deputies-the United Russia party Vitaly Milonov (6th place) and Peter Tolstoy (10-e). The last two have become involved in mediastinal because of their statements that caused indignation of the Jewish community. The only representative of the “United Russia” among the top ten most mediaactive deputies became head of the international Affairs Committee, liberal Democrat Leonid Slutsky (9-e). On 11-th place by popularity in the media — the Communist Valery Rashkin, famous for a series of controversial bills, such as prohibiting civil servants and deputies to have real estate abroad and prohibiting foreign education of children of officials, which, however, the support of the state Duma has not received.
The experts also calculated the activity of deputies in the Duma by the number of bills introduced and speeches in the hall. The three leaders — Oleg Nilov (a just Russia), Pavel Krasheninnikov (United Russia) and Nikolai Kolomeitsev (CPRF). The expert stresses that the rankings obviously did not take into account data on the leaders of the four factions and speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, since those are the Federal politicians and their performance in either case would be higher than other colleagues in Parliament.
Most notable was the extreme performance of the Duma indicators in spravedlivorossov, significantly higher than that of the Communists, said Martynov. According to him, this is due to the fact that the wards of Sergey Mironov in this convocation not just make a lot of bills, but also sign them commonly from the whole faction.
As stated by the Chairman of the faction Mikhail Emelyanov, to the Deputy of their faction introduced a bill must pass the approval fractional of the expert Council. “So often then to the bill, joined by other deputies”, — he said. “Fair Russia” in the past and in the last convocation was always in the first position for activity. The Communists and the LDPR are often inferior, because “we always wanted to show that we’re defending our constituents,” added Emelyanov.
Analysis of media activity of deputies does not reflect the quality of their work, they just make controversial statements that get into the media, considers political analyst Igor Bunin. According to him, even wants to change the image of the state Duma Volodin here unable to do anything: “He even in one of the comments has reminded that prohibit them from [doing controversial statements], they are free people,” — said the analyst .
