Putin to consider possibility to run for president again

Putin to consider possibility to run for president again”

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks at a press conference in Punkaharju, a resort in Savonlinna, eastern Finland, on July 27, 2017.

"We all ask you to run for president during the next presidential elections", the resident said.

Putin replied curtly: "OK, I will think about it. Thank you".

However, in March this year the head of the upper house Committee for Constitutional Law, Senator Andrey Klishas, drafted a bill seeking to set the date of the 2018 polls as March 18, to coincide with the commemoration of Crimea's reunification with Russian Federation.

Other parliamentary parties demonstrated much lower support.

Russian election authorities have said that leading opposition politician Aleksei Navalny will not be allowed to run in the election because he stands convicted of felony embezzlement. Just over 11 percent of respondents said they were ready to vote for the Liberal-Democratic Party of Russia, 9.1 percent said they would back the Communists, and just 5 percent opted the Fair Russia party.

Russian news agency TASS reports that Putin went to Siberia to hike in the forest, go fishing on mountain lakes and dive underwater while chasing a pike during a short stop in the Tyva region over the first two days in August.

However, a slight increase in the approval of the activities of Putin in the second half of July was close to peak values, as the aggravation of the global situation resulted in the strengthening of support for the head of state, Mamonov said. Eighteen percent said that they would prefer somebody else in the position and 16 percent declined to give an unambiguous answer.
