What was Duma? How far was it successful?
Elected consultative Parliament was the Duma. It was a parliament whose representatives were to be the elected members and they consulted the leader on various issues. It was first formed by the Tsar during the 1905 revolution.
It was not as successful as expected because firstly it was formed by Tsar, so he had the power to control it. Even though members were elected, but they worked like the puppet of Tsar. The first Duma was formed by him, but he soon removed them within 3 months second Duma was formed. They started working against Tsar and questioned his authority. He didn’t want anyone to reduce his power, so he formed the third Duma which included only Conservative politicians and liberals, revolutionaries were not included in this Duma.
