Volodin promised to punish MPs indebted to pay for communal
The State Duma Speaker says that he will deal with MPs, who ignored payments for housing and communal services for months.
On Tuesday, January 10, on State Duma meeting Vyacheslav Volodin ordered to compile lists of deputies, who did not pay utility bills for the service housing. According to him, non-payers should be punished.
In addition to the debtors, according to Volodin, black lists of truants will be constituted. He says that he is talking about the deputies, who met in the last convocation and were re-elected in the new, retaining the service housing.
The exact amount of the debt and the number of debtors the speaker does not mention, however, he adds that two ex-MPs still have not left the service apartments.
Recall that on December 4, 2016 more than 80 former members of Parliament have continued to reside in their official apartments in Moscow, but, under the law, deputies of the new convocation State Duma have the right to claim for living space.
The State Duma member is not happy about the fact that the budget surpluses that rolled in as a result of additional income following the oil and gas sales are being forwarded to the Russian National Wealth Fund.
