MOSCOW – The Russians have given President Vladimir Putin the right to rule the country until 2036 by unanimously voting on legislative amendments that reset the longtime Russian incumbency clock to zero.
The final official count released Thursday after 99.9 percent of the ballots counted. It indicates that Vladimir Putin who has been the ruler of Russia for more than two decades as prime minister or the president had secured the Authority to run for two terms, more than six years after the current one expires in 2024.
This means that the 67-year-old leader could remain in power until he is 83 years old.
Voting started on June 25, giving Russian voters about a week to cast their votes in person. The government has eased all of its pandemic restrictions a day before the start of the vote, marked by a grand holiday parade.
Putin expressed his gratitude to Russian voters for their confidence and support on Thursday after electoral authorities confirmed that almost 80 percent of voters are in favor of legislative reviews.
One of which will have a reset of the limits of the Presidential mandate, which could make Putin the leader of the nation, for the rest of his life.
Ella Pamfilova, director of the Central Electoral Commission, revealed that the vote had been transparent and that the authorities had done everything possible to safeguard her integrity.
Meanwhile, Russia has registered nearly 655,000 coronavirus cases, the country’s crisis response center said. Only the United States and Brazil have reported more. More than 9,500 people have perished from COVID-19 in Russia.
