Lugansk People’s Republic parliamentarians have approved the amendment to the law on municipalities which sets a five-year term in office for municipal representative bodies.
In late April, the LPR People’s Council (parliament) passed the law on the names of government bodies in new LPR municipalities and the number of representatives. Back then, head of the parliament committee on legislation Alexander Kriyerenko told the Lugansk Media Center that “each representative body in new municipalities will have 15 to 25 deputies.”
In Russia, a period of five years is a standard term in office for the deputies elected to local representative bodies such as town, village or district councils. *i*ie
