MP Poklonskaya not to monitor over Duma's earnings any more, her commission abolished
The deputy of United Russia voted against the pension reform, which resulted in a conflict with the party leadership.
The State Duma Committee on Regulations united the commission on revenue control with an ethics commission. RIA Novosti reports this with reference to head of the committee Olga Sevastyanova.
According to her, deputies Natalia Poklonskaya and Otari Arshba who headed the commission will lose their posts. Who will lead the new joint commission is not specified.
Sevastyanova stressed that the proposal to review the activities of the two commissions was under reconsideration since the beginning of 2018.
Ex-prosecutor of the Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya led the commission on monitoring revenues in 2016. In July this year, she found herself in the middle of the conflict, becoming the only deputy of the United Russia faction, who voted against the pension reform. On the same day, the meeting of the commission was disrupted – only three members of the commission turned up.
Head of the faction Sergey Neverov stressed after voting on pension reform that Poklonskaya has to decide whether she is ready to continue working in the team.
Later, the media reported that a decision to dismiss Poklonskaya from the post of deputy chairman of the committee on security and combating corruption was made.
