How Communism Works in Russia

Communism is a form of government that doesn’t allow people to own property or have businesses. It’s an oppressive system, like in the novel 1984. But Russia isn’t communist: it has a president! And the president is democratically elected by the citizens of that country. But wait, what do I mean by democracy? What does democracy look like in Russia? And what role does communism play there? In this article, we’ll explore these questions and more as we take a deep dive into the history and current state of Russian politics.

You can vote for the president.

The President of the Russian Federation is the head of state, supreme commander-in-chief, and holder of the highest office within the Russian Federation. The current President is Vladimir Putin, who assumed office on May 7th, 2012. He was elected to that position in March 2012 after having been acting president since December 1999 (when Boris Yeltsin stepped down).

The President can serve two terms; however he or she may only run for election once every six years. The president’s role includes appointing ministers and heads of federal agencies and other high-ranking officials; signing federal laws; receiving ambassadors from foreign countries; granting amnesty or pardons for convicts in accordance with legislation; calling referendums on important issues (with approval from parliament); declaring war on another state if requested by parliament; and dissolving parliament if appropriate under conditions determined by law.

The president can veto laws.

You can veto laws, but you only have one chance to use it. You cannot veto the same law twice, or any other law that is against the Russian constitution. If you decide not to use your veto, then the law becomes valid when it has been passed by both houses of Parliament.

If you want to veto something, then send a message explaining why it should not be passed into law within three days of receiving it from Parliament (the message must be sent by post).

The president cannot call elections earlier than the set date.

The president is the head of state and acts as an executive, although he can also be a prime minister. The president cannot call elections earlier than the set date. If parliament passes a vote of no confidence in his government after two requests from him for them to reconsider, he dissolves parliament and calls new elections.

The Duma has 450 members, elected for five years by proportional representation with an average district magnitude of 11. It is presided over by a speaker who is elected at the beginning of each new term by secret ballot among its deputies. The Government is headed by Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev as of May 2008 (he was appointed by Putin).

The Federation Council has 170 members: two from each region with more than 1 million inhabitants (Moscow being counted as such), one from each autonomous republic within Russia’s borders, eight representing national minorities living within republic boundaries and six representing Russian citizens living abroad. The council meets annually in March or April to elect new senators who serve six-year terms; half are up for election every three years under a system set forth in Article 104a(2) of Russia’s constitution that came into effect in 1993 after they were added following Yeltsin’s dissolution on Nov 20 1992 (which would have left some seats vacant until 1994).

The lower chamber, the State Duma, has 450 members elected for a five-year term. Parties need to get at least seven percent of the vote to be represented.

The lower chamber, the State Duma, has 450 members elected for a five-year term. Parties need to get at least seven percent of the vote to be represented. Members of parliament (MPs) are chosen by party lists rather than by constituency. They cannot be reelected more than twice consecutively and they can serve no more than two terms in total. The upper chamber is called the Federation Council and consists of representatives from each constituent unit: Altai Republic, Arkhangelsk Oblast, Astrakhan Oblast, Bashkortostan Republic (Bashkiria), Belgorod Oblast, Bryansk Oblast, Chechnya Republic (Chechnya-Ingushetia), Chuvashia Republic (Chuvashia), Dagestan Republic (Dagestan), Ivanovo Oblast Jambul Region Kaliningrad Region Kalmyk Autonomous District Kamchatka Krai Karelia republic Khabarovsk Krai Khanty–Mansi Autonomous Okrug Kirov Oblast Komi Republic Perm Krai Primorsky Krai Saint Petersburg Samara Oblast Sakhalin region Sverdlovsk oblast Tatarstan Tyumen oblast Ulyanovsk obstan Udmurtia Vologda Vladimir region Volgograd region Voronezh Vyborg district Irkutsk region Zabaikalsky krai

It considers and approves legislation, but the Federation Council (upper chamber) has power of veto.

The legislative branch of Russia’s federal government is composed of two chambers:

  • The State Duma (lower chamber), which has 450 seats. It considers and approves legislation, but the Federation Council (upper chamber) has power of veto.
  • The Federation Council (upper chamber), which has 178 seats elected by regional parliaments. It reviews and approves presidential nominations for federal officials such as ambassadors, judges and senators.

It makes recommendations to the president on internal and foreign policy, and votes confidence in the government (the prime minister and cabinet).

The parliament of the Russian Federation is a bicameral legislature. It consists of two chambers: the State Duma, which has 450 seats, and the Federation Council, which has 170 members. The State Duma is often referred to as Russia’s lower house because its members are elected directly by voters from federal subjects of Russia (for example, cities and regions).

In contrast to this arrangement, members of the Federation Council are appointed by governors or other representatives from each constituent member state based on population size. Each governor appoints one senator who must be between 35-65 years old; if there are less than 100 thousand people living in his or her territory then he/she can appoint up to four senators with no upper limit on their age; if there are more than 100 thousand inhabitants then only one senator may be appointed per 100 thousand inhabitants; if there are more than 1 million people living in his/her territory then he/she cannot appoint any senator at all.

Russia is a democracy and communism is not running rampant

You may be wondering how Russia is able to simultaneously be a democracy and run rampant with communism. The answer is simple: Russia has a parliament, which is the legislative branch of government. It has two chambers—the Upper House and the Lower House—and each chamber has its own responsibilities.

The Upper House consists of 225 members who are elected by popular vote for six-year terms in single-member constituencies across the country.[1] The Lower House (also known as “State Duma”) consists of 450 members who are elected by popular vote for four years.[2]

Once you’ve voted for your representative in one of these two chambers, he or she can become president if he or she receives more than 50% approval from voters during presidential elections.[3]

The Russian president also has veto power over legislation passed by both houses of parliament.[4] This means that if half or more legislators from either house disagree with what he vetoes then they can override his veto with a two-thirds majority vote.[5][6]

Conclusion

The general conclusion is that Russia is a democracy, and communism has not taken over the country.
