Any constitutional change always causes fear, but can benefit the legal system; however, to talk about the feasibility of any amendments of normative acts prematurely before the submission of the project, said the lawyer Sergei Mikhailov, commenting on the proposal of the head of the constitutional court Valery Zorkin to address the shortcomings of the Basic law of the Russian Federation point changes.

Earlier Zorkin in interview «Rossiyskaya Gazeta» stated that the Russian Constitution has flaws, but they can be addressed point changes. Among the disadvantages Zorkin called the lack of clarity in the distribution of powers between the President and the government in determining the status of the presidential administration and powers of the Prosecutor’s office. In his opinion, deficiencies exist in the delimitation of subjects of competence and powers between the Federation and its constituent entities.

«To speak with confidence about the appropriateness of certain edits regulations always premature prior to the submission of the draft of the proposed innovations. I want to believe that the proposed changes will actually pursue the purpose of improvement of the Russian legal system, not to solve the problems on the agenda of political objectives,» — said Mikhailov RIA Novosti.

According to him, to address urgent issues of legal regulation without amending the Constitution.

«Stability and consistency of regulatory control — the key to the normal functioning and development both social and economic institutions. Changes of this normative legal act, like the Constitution, always raises many concerns. Moreover, constitutions of many developed countries, in my opinion, is far from perfect, that does not prevent to solve the issues of legal regulation in other ways than by making changes to the very Foundation of the legislative system of the state», — said the lawyer.
