The purpose of the Russian senators at the presidential quota will go gradually, the speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko.

«I don’t think that will be appointed once all 17 senators. Most likely, the appointment will go gradually,» she said in an interview with the newspaper «Izvestia».

She recalled that the law gives the President the right to send to the Federation Council to 10% of the senatorial body, and this practice exists in many countries where there is the upper house of Parliament.

Russian legislation provides three ways to contact the Federation Council: a Senator may delegate either the legislature of one of the regions, or it needs to run in tandem with the Governor when he was elected to his post, after which the head of the region sends it to the upper house. In addition, from 2014 the right to appoint a Senator in the Federation Council was received by the President, but still he never exercised this right. In accordance with the relevant amendments to the Constitution, these Federal senators, was introduced on «presidential quota» is an additional 10% or 17 mandates.
