RFE: Putin Signs Constitutional Changes That Allow Him To Rule Until 2036
MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a controversial bill that opens the door for him to potentially remain in power until 2036.
The bill, which was recently approved by the lower and upper chambers of parliament, aligns the election laws with constitutional changes approved by voters last year.
One of the constitutional changes resets Putin's term-limit clock to zero, allowing him to seek reelection when his current term expires in 2024, and again in 2030 if he wishes.
WNU editor: I know hundreds of family, friends, and contacts in Russia. No one supports this move by President Putin to change the election law so that he can stay in power until 2036. No one. And some of these people are members of Putin's political party. But it got passed by parliament, and it was signed into law today. All that I can say is that Putin may want to remain President until 2036, but it is not going to be an easy task for him to pull it off.
