Russian President Putin signs law allowing him to stay in power till 2036 | Vladimir Putin
Moscow: It is clear that Vladimir Putin, Russia’s most powerful leader, will serve two more terms as Russia’s president until 2036. Such government documents have been signed and sealed by Putin himself. Putin, 68, has ruled Russia for the past two decades.
The documents were signed by Vladimir Putin on Monday after Russia’s parliament passed a similar amendment. The decision was made on the basis of a referendum held in Russia last year, according to government documents.
Vladimir Putin’s current term ends in 2024. According to the rules of the Russian Constitution, no person can serve more than two terms as President of Russia. Earlier, the rules were amended for Vladimir Putin. A similar amendment has been passed, saying that after Putin’s term ends in 2024, he will be able to hold the presidency for the next two terms, until 2036.
Vladimir Putin was first elected President of Russia in 2000. He was replaced by Medvedev in 2008 after four consecutive years in power. At the time, Medvedev amended the constitution to extend the term of the next president to six years. Accordingly, in 2012, Putin was re-elected President of Russia. Once again in 2018, after winning the election for the fourth time, Putin became president.
Opposition groups in Russia have strongly criticized Putin’s decision. Opposition groups called for a boycott of the election, but Putin was “a lifetime president.”
