Alexander Ivanchenko: here sanctions are possible up to criminal

on the Central Electoral Commission Position of a referendum has commented for its chairman ALEXANDER IVANCHENKO.

- Who exactly initiated referendum cancellation?
- it is Already unimportant, who the first has learnt about carrying out of an unconstitutional referendum. The main thing that federal bodies - the State Office of Public Prosecutor, the Supreme court - could consider operatively this question, and now the decree on a referendum is excellent.
- the Ingush authorities assert that when last autumn congress of the Ingush people has made the decision on referendum carrying out, on it all federal authorities have been informed. Whether received the Central Electoral Commission such letter?
- straight off I am not ready to remember, but is assured: if the Central Electoral Commission received these documents, reaction would be immediate and just the same what we have stated upon referendum appointment. We start with the procedure provided in the law of Ingushetia: the referendum is appointed by the president of republic. And it bears all completeness of responsibility for appointment of the referendum contradicting the Constitution. Undertaking this or that way of the decision of a question, it is necessary to study, what legal possibilities of its decision. Not to forget about that we live in a legal federative state which has the Constitution, federal law-enforcement the bodies, capable to call to responsibility including officials of subjects of federation. After all here sanctions are possible up to the criminal.
- which sanctions? After all the legal basis for a response of head of the subject is not present. To enter tanks?
- ways of liability of infringement of the Constitution are. Another matter that the accurate mechanism of this responsibility for the present is not adjusted. Just those collisions which we face on an example of Ingushetia, and will force the federal authorities to consider the problem more attentively, they possess what powers more consistently to supervise execution of the federal Constitution.
