NotesNews : The Russian Parliament's overwhelming rejection of Viktor Chernomyrdin's nomination as Prime Minister yesterday threatened to prolong the current political crisis for another fortnight and to do futher damage to the country's already badly weakened economy. As members of the Duma, the lower house of the Parliament took it in turns to savage Mr Chernomyrdin's record in office and to repeat calls for President Yeltsin to be dismissed. Russians resigned themselves to yet another protracted power struggle between the executive and the legislature. [Richard Beeston, The Times, 1st September 1998]
