…YELTSIN TEAM MULLS REFERENDUM ON AMENDING CONSTITUTION.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 85
The Yeltsin team is said also to be mulling over various new legislative proposals, a move which the journalist Anna Ostapchuk attributes to a desire to make Yeltsin’s candidacy more attractive to wavering voters. One variant would involve a referendum on restricting the president’s wide powers, such as mandating pre-term presidential elections should the president seek twice to dissolve parliament during his five-year term in office. Another proposal would reinstate the office of vice president, perhaps specifying that the position be held by the speaker of the upper house of parliament. (Moskovskie novosti, No. 17)
