MOSCOW, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The current sixth State Duma will work its full term, in accordance with the Russian Constitution, lower house speaker Sergei Naryshkin said on Friday.

Naryshkin noted he would “advise everyone to calm down and get busy.” “The sixth State Duma will work its full term, in accordance with the Russian Constitution,” the speaker stressed.
On Thursday, leader of A Just Russia party Sergei Mironov did not exclude the possibility of holding elections to the State Duma in 2015, and not in 2016 - in the context of Crimea's accession to Russia.
