Public control at municipal level: the analysis of the law novels

Objective: to determine the feasibility of implementing public control over local governments under current law.

Methods: dialectical approach to the cognition of social phenomena, allowing to analyze them in the context of the totality of objective and subjective factors, determined using the systematic, comparative-legal and formal-logical methods.

Results: basing on the analysis of novels in the Russian legislation in the sphere of public control, in particular, Federal Law No. 212-FZ "On the bases of public control in the Russian Federation" of 21.07.2014, the authors make a conclusion on the establishment of a system of public control in Russia at the federal, regional and municipal levels through the activities of such civil society institutions as the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, Public Chambers of the Russian Federation subjects and the public chamber (councils) of municipalities.
However, the study revealed a significant gap in the current legislation regarding the establishment of municipal public control in the absence of controlling subjects – public chambers (councils) of municipalities, the creation of which is not mandatory. On the basis of this study, the authors formulated a proposal to amend the legislation to improve the public control efficiency.

Scientific novelty: due to the novelty of the law on public control, adopted in mid-2014, the authors, in fact, made one of the first attempts of interpret the adopted legal norms regarding the establishment of municipal public control in Russia.

Practical value: the main provisions and conclusions of the article can be used in scientific and pedagogical activity in the study of the formation and organization of public control in Russia. Suggestions can be used by the legislators to improve the legal regulation of the public control institution.
