2024 - Russian Elections - Master Thread
« on: March 15, 2024, 04:46:56 AM »
Based on a wikipedia article.

A presidential election in Russia is currently being held from 15–17 March 2024. This is the eighth presidential election in the country. If no candidate receives more than half the vote, a second round will take place exactly three weeks later, on 7 April 2024.

According to clause 3 of article 81 of the Constitution of Russia, prior to the 2020 constitutional revision, the same person could not hold the position of President of the Russian Federation for more than two consecutive terms, which allowed Vladimir Putin to become president in 2012 for a third term not consecutive with his prior terms. The constitutional reform established a hard limit of two terms overall. However, terms served before the constitutional revision do not count, which gives Vladimir Putin eligibility for two more presidential terms.

According to the new version of the Constitution, presidential candidates must:

Be at least 35 years old (the requirement has not changed);
Be resident in Russia for at least 25 years (previously 10 years);
Not have foreign citizenship or residence permit in a foreign country, neither at the time of the election nor at any time before (new requirement).

Candidates:

Vladislav Davankov (40) New People

Vladimir Putin (71) Independent

Leonid Slutsky (56) Liberal Democratic Party

Nikolay Kharitonov (75) Communist Party

Banned Candidates:

Boris Nadezhdin (60) Civic Initiative

Registered voters: 114,212,734

In a surprising turn of events, Vladimir Putin (Independent) received 76,277,708 votes, 88.48% of the votes, to be the Prime Minister for the next 6(000?) years.

Interesting to note is that Putin is just one letter off of Purin.

Why is this in Russian elections thread?

Don't fool yourself regarding DEM party. It is a Kurdish party. Nothing to do with democracy.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Because Erdogan=Islamic version of Putin and I didn't find a Turkey politics thread.

Kurds are way better than Islamonazis.
