Oleg Belyakov, “We must live by the law”


After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the member states inherited from the union or autonomous republics a system of state power and parliaments. In contrast, in Pridnestrovie, authorities were created from scratch. At the II Extraordinary Congress of People's Deputies of all levels on the day of the proclamation of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic on September 2, 1990, the Provisional Supreme Council was elected. Having existed for about three months, this body adopted more than 60 laws and regulations necessary to regulate the life of the republic. On November 29, 1990, the first session of the first convocation of the Supreme Council was held. From that day on, the countdown of the legislature of the republic began. On the occasion of the 29th anniversary of the parliament Oleg Belyakov, deputy of the Supreme Council, co-chair of the JCC from Pridnestrovie told about its role and tasks.
