The authors compare federal laws “On general principles of local self-government organization in the Russian Federation”, adopted in 1995 and 2003, giving a more detailed examination of particularities of the new law. Along with that, the authors hold that the quality of implementation of the new law at the early stage will be largely determined by the quality of transitory provisions that enter into force two years before the law itself. It is particularly stated that the provisions of the law place a considerable focus on direct forms of population’s participation in solving the problems of local self-government. E.Ivanova and S.Miroshnikov do not tend to consider the 2003 law either perfect or final. Its practical implementation will inevitably lead to amendments and supplements, and ultimately – to the elaboration of a new version.
