Dear friends!

I’m glad to welcome you on my personal Web-site. It is the Parliament that acts as a mouthpiece of interests for various groups and strata of civil society, molding these interests into political will, and declares the people to be the sovereign. Parliamentary system is a universal phenomenon that has different features in different countries, and one of the most effective instruments of governance.

I hope here you will find information about the State Council (Parliament) of the Republic of Tatarstan and me, its Chairman.

Sincerely, Farid Mukhametshin
