Some five candidates will run for presidency in Russia in March 2008
Some five candidates will run for presidency in Russia in March 2008. Such was the forecast of head of Russia’s Central Electoral Commission Alexander Veshnyakov at the meeting on Wednesday with chief editors of the regional media arranged by the Alliance of Heads of Regional Media of Russia. “It is highly likely,” Veshnyakov said, that there would be no amendment to the Russian Constitution as to the number of consecutive presidential terms, which is in keeping with the stand of the president and the parliamentary majority. He said the upcoming presidential election campaign would be marked by “heightened political tension, which is already observed among the political elite.” As to the coming parliamentary election due on December 2, 2007, Veshnyakov forecast that no less than ten political parties would participate in the election and three or four of them would make it to the State Duma of the fifth convocation. Veshnyakov did not rule out that under certain conditions five parties might clear the barrier to the Duma. The head of the Central Electoral Commission said his forecast was based on the results of regional elections. Thus, altogether 14 political parties took part in regional parliamentary elections on October 8, but no more than ten of them were successful.
