Honourable Guests! Dear Friends!
Russian parliamentarism has a century-old history. The democratic institutions are considered to have passed a test of time and have obtained their position in the state structure. Russia is among the countries which has recently come to democracy. In comparison with such countries as the USA, France and Great Britain Russian parliamentarism is young and that is why it experiences "disease of growth". Besides, it has an effect on the quality of lawmaking. I'm sure that the Russian deputies of all levels should work for passing required laws - required by most people, not only officials. It is possible to achieve a success only with the help of citizens. Otherwise, Russian parliamentarism would have died before being born in fact.
I'm convinced that great future based on social and economic growth and fortified positions in the world awaits Russia. It is necessary to realize that future depends on each of us. Tomsk deputies for their part do their best to make Russia worthy and constructive.
Special significance in the democratization of our state takes the interaction of parliament and people. The Legislative Duma of Tomsk Oblast carries out a policy of attraction people to the lawmaking process. And we use the recourses of the Internet as well.
The official website of the Legislative Duma of Tomsk Oblast is not only a source of information about the representative body but also a feedback channel. Within the bounds of the project Public Opinion as the 43rd Deputy we organize public opinion polls and discussions on different topics with the participation of experts.
