To name or rename a geographic location within the region is to be by mutual consent of the locals. Relevant draft law was adopted on first reading at a regular meeting of Legislative Duma, as reported by Press Service of regional parliament to RIAP «Khabarovsk online».
Drafting process is due to the amendments to the Federal Law «On naming the geographic locations» that includes relevant provisions. From now rural settlements, small rivers and other locations are to be named only being considered by the locals.
To reveal the opinions on naming and renaming the geographic locations a kind of poll is supposed to be conducted. The procedure and form of the poll is stipulated by the Law. The decision making on conducting the poll is up to regional parliament while the process itself is to be regulated by a special commission. The Law as well determines that the poll is subject to 25% minimum of citizens concerned and announcement at least 10 days before the start date.
The name under consideration is supposed to be approved by more than a half of respondent votes. Locals are to be informed of poll results via mass media within 10 days after the end date. The procedure of geographic locations renaming is the same.
