Discussing the Imperfection of the Statutory Rulemaking of Municipal Formations of the Altai Territory
The Constitution of the Russian Federation, as well as a number of major federal and regional laws, constituted the foundation for the formation of the local selfgovernment in Russia. However, the mere establishment of the legal framework is not a guarantee of successful development and functioning of the local self-government, and the process of formation of the local self-government is complex and contradictory. An important role is played by municipal legal acts, designed to reflect the characteristics and specificity of the organization of local self-governance in municipalities. First of all, we are talking about statutes, which are “mini constitution” for municipalities and are the basis for the development and adoption of other municipal legal acts. The article gives an overview and a comprehensive analysis of the authorized rulemaking of the Altai Territory municipalities, assesses its status, identifies and demonstrates the examples of shortcomings and inconsistency of municipal statutes to the current federal legislation, investigates the causes of the imperfection of municipal statutes in the Altai region, defines further prospects of statutory rulemaking of municipalities and provides appropriate recommendations aimed at improving the quality of statutory law-making process.
