The relationship between the parliament and president has become more majoritarian under the Putin presidency, giving Putin a basis of political support not enjoyed by his predecessor. This chapter examines the partisan, institutional, and policy effects of this move towards majoritarianism. Despite the change in the nature of inter-branch relations, the executive’s dominance of the legislative sphere is not absolute. Putin remains constrained by the particularistic interests that hampered Yeltsin’s presidency. Nonetheless, the conflicts on legislation that previously spilled out on the floor of the assembly are now largely confined to the government’s party, United Russia.
