Abstract

The article considers the theoretical foundations of constitutional representation as a legal institution, issues of identification of political representation in the modem science of constitutional law, the correlation of methodological and normative bases of public political representation in constitutional jurisprudence and issues of improving constitutional representation in the political and legal practice of Russia. The author explores the problem of legal identification of constitutional representation, demonstrates the relationship between constitutional democracy and "people's representation", "representation in constitutional law", the "right to people's representation". He discusses the scientific approaches to understanding the nature and features of public political representation established by the Constitution of the Russian Federation in 1993. This article substantiates the scientific and legal-political significance of the concept of constitutional representation for the development and improvement of various forms of public political representation in Russia, examines the influence of the theory of Republicanism on the system of public political representation, the prospects for the formation of multi-level Constitutionalism in Russian jurisprudence and the practice of territorial organization of the state. The concept of constitutional representation (as a legal institution) is designed to explain the possibilities for expanding the political participation of citizens at the federal, regional and municipal levels of the organization of public authority, as well as to reveal the forms of public political representation in the territorial structure of the Russian state. The article uses the methods of comparative and systemic analysis, the method of constitutional design, concrete historical and formal legal methods of analysis. The author uncovers gaps and shortcomings in the current legislation in the sphere of constitutional representation and formulates the provisions for the improvement of constitutional legislation. Particular attention is paid to the dynamic possibilities, realities and prospects of the implementation of the right to constitutional representation as a guarantee of the implementation of the principle of people's sovereignty, not only at the federal level, but also at the regional and municipal levels of the organization of public power. The study analyzes the theoretical basis, the origins of constitutional representation as well as the problem of the implementation of the forms of public political representation in Russia as the basis of the constitutional order of Russia.
