Alexander Veshniakov:"Presidential elections in Chechnya would be held no later than the first Sunday in September of this year"
The declaration of a state of emergency in Chechnya or the imposition of direct presidential rule there is not necessary, according to the vice-speaker of the Russian Duma, Viacheslav Volodin (United Russia). Meanwhile, the head of the Russian Central Election Commission, Alexander Veshniakov, told journalists that presidential elections in Chechnya would be held no later than the first Sunday in September of this year. Volodin told a press conference Tuesday: 'There is a constitution, and it has to be observed. Until new elections are held in Chechnya, the government will be headed by the acting president,' Prime Minister Sergei Abramov. Volodin said that a Tuesday session of the presidium of the United Russia party had decided to direct the Duma Security Committee to prepare a study in connection with events in Chechnya. He said the document would be discussed at the May 12 session of the Duma.
