Vladimir Putinto: Vyacheslav Prokofyev / TASS
The candidates for the post of the President of Russia must meet more stringent requirements. The proposal was made by President Vladimir Putin during the annual address to the Federal Assembly, the broadcast of which is “Russia 24”.
According to Putin, candidates must live in Russia for at least 25 years and never have citizenship of another country. In addition, the Russian leader agreed to remove from the Constitution a reservation of the presidency for two consecutive terms.
Currently a candidate for the office of President must be a citizen of Russia not younger than 35, permanently living on the territory of the country for at least ten years. Thus one and the same person cannot hold the office of President for two consecutive terms.
In December of 2019 at the annual press conference, Putin has said that the Constitution you can cancel a reservation “in a row”.
