In Saint Petersburg, they want to deprive of their mandates more than 30 deputies who have left the country

In Saint-Petersburg, they will leave without mandate the municipal deputies who left Russia after the beginning of the special operation. There were more than 30 such people in the city, writes Neva.Today.

According to Natalia Chechina, president of the Committee for the territorial development of Saint-Petersburg, the deputies who have gone abroad do not appear at the meetings of the municipal councils and do not participate at all in the work of the municipalities. Some of them, however, try to organize meetings from abroad, but such meetings, according to Chechina, are illegitimate.

The head of the committee said such people “have no place in elected bodies”. She added that she supports a new federal law that allows deputies who miss meetings for more than six months without good reason to be stripped of their powers.
