    Proposals to allot 17 of the 24 seats in the Parliamentary Assembly to the United Russia party (which gathered over 37% of the vote in the December 7 Duma elections), 3 - to the KPRF (slightly over 14%) and 2 - to the Rodina bloc (9%) and the LDPR (slightly over 12 %), each will be submitted for discussion by the Council members, the PAU press-service reported.

    The decision of the Council will make it possible to go over to the personal formation of the deputation of the State Duma in the Parliamentary Assembly and hold the next, 24th PAU session.
