Utilization of the Information and Communication Technologies by the Legislative Assemblies of the Republics of the Russian Federation

Using the various cases of the parliaments of the Russian Republics, this paper discusses the utilization of information and communication technologies (ICTs) by the local legislative bodies. It analyses the influence of specific factors, such as the historical development and the economic prosperity of a region on the usage of electronic means of communication by local authorities. Being directly elected bodies, the parliaments are expected to employ all possible means of communication with their electorate in order to ensure the accountability and adequate representation of their people’s interests.
