USSR. Badge of the deputy of the Supreme Council of the Estonian SSR. 12th convocation of 1990 No. 9.
The Supreme Soviet of the USSR was elected for 4 years (from 1975 for 5 years). The Supreme Council of the Union Republic becomes the supreme body of state power of the Union republics. The Supreme Council of the Union Republic was elected by the citizens of the republic for a period of four years. The Supreme Soviets of the Union and Autonomous Republics were unicameral. The norms of representation were established by the Constitutions of the Union and Autonomous Republics. It is necessary to emphasize the difference between CEC members and deputies of the Supreme Soviets. If the former were elected at the All-Russian (later at the All-Union) Congress of Soviets, then the latter were elected in "places." The election procedure was called "convocation."
