Speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin considers that the professionalism of the lower house of Parliament increased at the expense of what voters have come to believe less populist and delegate it «outrageous characters».

«MPs are not elected on Mars and live among us, and elect people. Changes in professionalism of the state Duma and the level of awareness of MPs is the consequence of changes that occur in our society, in the country. Thus, the fact that more responsible people have been delegated the power, is the merit of our citizens. Voters have come to believe less populist, less steel delegate to the state Duma outrageous characters,» said Volodin in interview to «Rossiyskaya Gazeta».

The speaker of the state Duma explained that it is impossible to force deputies «to be afraid of deduction from wages», there are members whose income amounts to a billion rubles a year or more, and for them salary is not a motivating factor, he said.

«At the same time, no deduction in the form of punishment during this time was not. The main factor in improving the discipline of the other. People came to the state Duma, having overcome serious competition, he fought for the mandate in order to realize himself in politics. Of course, it is important to influence decisions, participate in their discussion. The possibility of self-realization — the main motivating factor to go to the meetings», — he said.

Volodin said that there are times when deputies have to «go out, meet with voters or take part in other meetings». «It’s all business issues, and they are regulated», — the politician concluded.
