MOSCOW, May 6 (UPI) -- The process of lawmaking in the Russian parliament is too chaotic, the head of the parliament's upper chamber said Friday.

The Federation Council, the upper house of the Russian parliament, has prepared a new study on the process of drafting and bringing into law new parliamentary legislation. But it has concluded that current procedures are too complex, time-consuming and chaotic, Federation Council Chairman Sergei Mironov told Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to an Interfax news agency report.

"The main conclusion of experts is that, unfortunately, Russian legislation, at least as of 2004, is fragmentary and unsystematic," Mironov said.

On May 11, the Federation Council will discuss a program to streamline the process of drafting legislation to implement proposals in President Putin's annual addresses to the nation, Mironov said.
