Карта Татарстана

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

Farid Mukhametshin met with delegation from Council of Europe

Farid Mukhametshin met with delegation from Council of Europe
Today, Speaker of the Tatarstan Parliament, Honorary Member of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe Farid Mukhametshin met with a delegation from the CLRACE. The sides discussed the organization of local self-government in Tatarstan.

The delegation led by Mr Jakob Wienen and Mr Stewart Dickson has been examining the situation of local and regional democracy in the light of the provisions of the European Charter of Local Self-Government ratified by Russia in 1998.

According to Farid Mukhametshin Tatarstan is a home for 173 different nationalities and has high industrial potential.

The head of the Parliament spoke about the peculiarities of the republican political structure. In Tatarstan public institutions are created to protect people's rights. The rights of 956 municipalities are defended by the Council of municipalities.

Farid Mukhametshin touched upon the activities of the State Council in the international arena. Currently, the Parliament has signed 10 agreements and protocols with foreign partners. It contributes to the promotion of the dialogue between Russian regions and the Council of Europe.

He stressed that in the difficult political situation “there is the need to compromise regardless of the external factors, but taking into account the interests of all parties".

The delegation members agreed with the Speaker. “We hope to ease tense relations between Russia and the Council of Europe through negotiation. The constructive dialogue is better than discrepancies,” Mr Jakob Wienen said.

The European Charter of Local Self-Government is one of the most important international documents recognized by all member states of the Congress. “Of course, the structure of local self-government should not be the same in all states. But the main provisions of the Charter should be implemented everywhere,” the European parliamentarian said.

Back in October 2010, a report on the development of local self-government and democracy in Russia was presented at the session of the CLRACE. Russia’s experience in the implementation of the Charter was considered successful.
