Will the CEC decide to hold a “pension” referendum?
According to Maya Grishina, the decision on whether or not to hold a referendum on this issue will be made already this week. Documents representing a request for a plebiscite on the expression of the attitude of Russians to the parameters of pension reform voiced, were submitted to the CEC from the Moscow City Duma. Why precisely from Moscow City Council? The fact is that the first meeting of the regional subgroup on the initiative of holding a referendum was held in Moscow.
What question are the representatives of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation planning to submit to this referendum?
It sounds like this:
"Do you agree with the fact that in the Russian Federation the age giving the right to the appointment of an old-age pension should not rise?"
Now the CEC decides whether the wording is in compliance with the law.
Earlier, the chairman of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov called raising the retirement age in Russia a blow to statehood.
Experts believe that a negative decision will be taken on the issue of holding a referendum - there will be a pretext.
In fact, the outcome of the referendum (if the CEC finally approved it) is predetermined. The basis may be the results of sociological monitoring, in which about 92% of citizens opposed the government initiative.
