Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has recently signed a new law that will reportedly allow him to cling to power till 2036.
Reports confirmed how Russia’s head of state made big news recently after signing a law called the ‘President for Life’ which enables him to serve two whole terms in the Kremlin, meaning he can exit in 2036. The July 1 constitutional votes entailed a thorough provision that resets all of his previous terms, mentioned authorities.
This is a prime example of a formal move that formalizes all types of constitutional changes that were endorsed in last year’s vote.
Meanwhile, local media outlets reported how the provision goes as far as stating how Putin’s previous terms will be reset, giving him the green light to run for the post of president, two more times.
The change was finalized and rubber-stamped by the country’s Kremlin-controlled legislature with the relevant law being signed by the head of state himself on Monday. The information was shared with the public by being posted through an official portal comprising legal information.
Putin is a 68-year-old who has already been in power for nearly two decades and that is officially the longest than any other leader of the Kremlin state, ever since the era of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.
But with this news, Putin also informed close sources that he would only decide to run for the post of president again in 2024, which is when his six-year term undergoes completion.
The president lashed out at critics by mentioning how the terms were necessary and that resetting would help prevent his lieutenants from possibly darting their eyes towards the possible lookout for successors instead of actually focusing on their real work.
Russia’s lawmakers have modified this national legislation, approving all of the relevant laws.
President Putin won his first-ever election for the presidency in 2000, right after he took over from the acting president of that time, Boris Yeltsin, who resigned on the last day of the 20th century.
