Interaction between Legislative Bodies at the Federal Level and Subjects of the Federation in Russia


Background/Objectives: The interaction of legislative bodies ensures democratic processes in Russia. Since 2015 a new electoral cycle has started, and therefore it is important to investigate the principles on which this interaction is based. Methods: The study uses statistical data to illustrate the interaction of legislative bodies in Russia. For the first time quantitative indicators of activity of the legislative bodies of different levels are given, which makes the study verifiable. The method of modeling the activities of legislative bodies has been applied. This enables predictive analysis of political situation development in Russia in the nearest election cycle. Findings: The study for the first time raised the question of the interaction of Russian legislative bodies of different levels as a factor characterizing the efficiency and quality of political processes in the Russian society. The research literature analyzes, as a rule, separately the activities of regional and federal legislative entities. The interaction of legislative bodies of different levels as such was not a subject of any study, since this research requires certain specificity: It is necessary to assess the activities of legislative bodies at various levels by statistical methods and to determine the specificity of their interaction. We have conducted this analysis, making it possible to distinguish areas in which the said interaction develops, to identify the pressure points, to formulate the recommendations for all levels of legislative power in Russia. The achieved results enable to assess the activities of each level of legislative power in Russia and see the features of their interaction, take a look at this interaction as at the measured factor of political activity in Russia. Applications/Improvements: The results are applicable to political theory and practice: They open up the prospect of studying political activity through the prism of legislative bodies’ interaction and enable to assess their activities through statistical indicators.
