Relationship among the President, Prime Minister and Parliament of Russia under the 1993 Constitution of the Russian Federation

Author: Abdul Salim Amin

This paper discusses the relationship among the president, the prime minister and the parliament of Russia under the Constitution of the Russian Federation (1993). Although the legal system of Russia recognises independent functions of each state branch based on the principle of separation of power, it fails to provide genuine instruments that can limit the president from accumulating power in the executive branch. It is designed in a way that not only persuades imbalance in power distribution, but also gives a constrict space to the prime minister and the parliament to appear independent in a series of interactions and, therefore, resulting in an undemocratic political process and derailed economic development.
