    MOSCOW, March 18, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - At its Friday session, the State Duma will consider the first reading of a draft law on uniting the Perm region and the Komi-Perm autonomous area, Speaker Boris Gryzlov told reporters.

    He specified that this would be the first federal law to unite two federation members.

    Mr. Gryzlov added that the draft law had been based on the results of a referendum held in the Perm region and the Komi-Perm autonomous district. During the referendum, the majority of local residents favoured the unification.

    "This is the first experience to unite federation members," said the speaker.
