New ethics code will ban Russian MPs from wearing miniskirtsMarch 26th, 2011 - 2:18 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 26 (ANI): A new ethics code has been passed that will forbid Russian MPs and their aides from wearing miniskirts and indiscreet behaviour that may tarnish the image of parliament.
According to the Moskovsky Komsomolets daily, the so-called Code of Ethics will impact everyone working in the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, including deputies and their staff members, the Telegraph reported.
The paper said the code recommends a “business style marked by formality, restraint, tradition, and neatness”, which might spell the end of miniskirts and low-cut blouses for many parliamentary assistants.
Duma workers will also have to minimise contact with journalists, directing all work-related questions to the press service, though in a “polite” manner.
The guidelines prepared on the orders of the president’s anti-corruption committee also said when speaking to each other, they will have to refrain from all “rudeness” and “arrogance”. (ANI)
