Модели российского парламентаризма
The article is based on the thesis that the unifi ed tradition of parliamentarism perception has not
decisively formed in Russia so far, as well as the unifi ed pattern of the interaction of the people’s representative body with the executive authorities. The splitting of the model into at least three different ones can be viewed as the result of the country contemporary political history with the not quite successful attempts of the constitutional reform. The author examines some of the key events of the last stage of this reform. Its results are assessed form the point of view of the condition of the representative body. The author tries to show the constitutional grounds for the Parliament “weakness” as per the Constitution of 1993. The author also reviews the legislative practice of the last two decades, in particular the evolution of the law on the Accounts Chamber and parliamentary investigations. Special attention in the article is paid to certain historical analogies: according to the author “the Monarchy of the 3d of June”, - the political regime that existed approximately from the end of 1907 and until the beginning of 1917, - can be viewed as prototype of the modern pattern of interaction between the executive authorities and the Parliament. The author also examines the possibility of supplementing the constitutional law with a number of more effi cient institutions of parliamentary control.
