Рассматриваются особенности отношения населения к региональным органам законодательной власти и их деятельности. Отмечается, что в современной политологии общепризнанным становится тезис о снижении эффективности системы представительства, обеспечивающейся функционированием парламентов и формирующих их партий. Это связано как с распространением менеджериальных подходов к управлению, так и с изменением требований многосоставного общества и механизмов определения «повестки дня». В России же кризисное состояние системы представительства детерминируется еще и особенностями политической трансформации, в ходе которой представительные органы всех уровней не получили серьезного влияния на распределение ресурсов, а потому не стали значимы для общества и не пользуются его поддержкой. Не способствует повышению доверия к региональным законодательной органам и широкое внедрение в избирательную практику административных технологий, а также низкая информированность населения об их полномочиях, деятельности и принципах формирования. Хотя заксобрания периодически информируют граждан о своей деятельности, общество не придает значения этим сообщениям, создавая тем самым «замкнутый круг» проблем российской системы представительства. Ключевые слова: субъекты РФ, законодательная (представительная) власть, политические ориентации, политические ценности. The peculiarities of the population’s attitudes towards the regional legislative bodies and their activities are discussed in the paper. The author claims that in contemporary political science the assumption concerning the decline in legislative bodies representation efficiency that is ensured by the functioning of parliaments and the political parties that form those bodies, have become popular. It is caused to some extend by development of management approaches to administration and also by changing requirements of the multi-partite society and ways of determining the agenda. In Russia, the crisis in the system of representation is determined by the peculiarities of the political transformation, during which the representative bodies of every level have not got a significant influence on the allocation of resources, so they have not become important to the public and have not been supported by it. The increasing introduction of administrative technologies into the electoral procedures, as well as the public relative ignorance of the powers, activities and principles of forming the legislative bodies, contributes to lower public confidence in the regional legislative bodies. Although the legislative assemblies regularly inform the public about their activities, people remain indifferent to those messages, thus forming ‘a vicious circle’ in the Russian system of representation.
