Date Of Presidential 'Elections' Announced In Russia

The campaign has been officially launched.

Russia's Federation Council has set the date for presidential elections. They will be held on March 17, 2024.

This is reported by the website of the Federation Council.

"In fact, this decision gives a start to the beginning of the election campaign," said the speaker of the upper house of parliament Valentina Matvienko.

Under Russian rules, presidential elections are scheduled by the Federation Council no earlier than 100 days and no later than 90 days before polling day.

Reuters reported earlier that Vladimir Putin had decided to run in the March presidential election, which would allow him to remain in power until at least 2030.

Putin, to whom Boris Yeltsin handed over the presidency on the last day of 1999, has already held the presidency longer than any other Russian ruler since Iosif Stalin, surpassing even Leonid Brezhnev's 18-year reign. Putin turned 71 on October 7.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, said Putin would be re-elected with more than 90 per cent of the votes.
