Russia’s Central Election Commission (CEC) will hold presidential elections on March 15 to 17 next year adding that elections will also be held through house-to-house voting in Russia’s four new regions, including Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhia, according to TASS.

Russia‘s CEC adopted a formal resolution designating these dates for holding the 2024 presidential elections, CEC Chairwoman Ella Pamfilova announced at a meeting of the elections authority.

Moreover, the CEC further announced to organise house-to-house voting in Russia’s four new regions as well as in the borderline Belgorod, Bryansk, and Kursk regions, and in the Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol, as these nine Russian regions face a complicated situation given that the special military operation is currently being conducted in or near their respective territories.

Former Commissioner for Human Rights of Russia Ella Pamfilova said that it has become a norm in Russia to hold a three-day voting period, reported



TASS.

Moreover, as reported earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday confirmed that he will be running for a fifth term in office in the 2024 presidential elections.
Putin’s current presidential term expires on May 7 of next year. Russia’s next presidential election is slated for March 17, 2024.

Putin served as the Russian President from 2000 to 2008 and has been holding the post since 2012 in two successive terms. He also served as the Russian Prime Minister from 2008 to 2012.

A constitutional amendment in 2021 allows Putin to run for two more six-year terms and possibly stay in power till 2036, which will make him the longest-serving Russian leader surpassing Joseph Stalin.

Meanwhile, Russia continues to be involved in a conflict with Ukraine after President Putin launched ‘special military operation’ against Kyiv on February 24, 2022.

The war has killed thousands of people on both sides and has caused huge damage to civilian infrastructure.
