Ingushetia’s Constitutional Court exceeds authority in border case – Russian senator
MOSCOW, November 27 (RAPSI) – The Constitutional Court of Ingushetia has gone beyond its powers during verification of legislation approving an agreement on the republic’s administrative border with Chechnya, the Federation Council member Andrey Klishas has said in the Russian Constitutional Court.
According to Klishas, Ingushetia’s Constitutional Court exceeded its authority as it was considering the agreement that had taken effect. However, in accordance with the republican law, it could hear only non-operational documents, he told RAPSI Tuesday.
The agreement fully conforms to the federal Constitution, the Federation Council member added.
The agreement was signed by the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov and the head of Ingushetia Yunus-bek Yevkurov on September 26. Later, on October 4, parliaments of two republics passed the regional laws enforcing this agreement. The document became effective in mid-October.
According to the agreement, a new border would facilitate further integration of regional economies and improve economic and social cooperation.
On Tuesday, the Constitutional Court of Russia is hearing an application of Yevkurov seeking to review the agreement for its compliance with the country’s Constitution.
