Vladimir Putin spoke frankly about who he wants to see in his place. He announced his successor in a special interview. Employees of the British Financial Times publication spoke with the President of the Russian Federation.
In 2024, in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin leaves his post. Who will be the next president, learned British journalists. It is noteworthy that the current leader of the country stressed that he would not change the documents regulating the presidential terms.
What did Putin tell about his successor?
It turns out that Vladimir Putin has been thinking about who will occupy his chair, since 2000. He emphasized this in an interview. Also, the head of the Russian Federation said that the next president will be the person who is determined by the people, guided by democratic principles.
In order for Vladimir Putin to take another politician’s seat, elections will be held in Russia (2024). The president said in an interview:
“THE SITUATION IS CHANGING, AND CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS FOR PEOPLE ARE ALSO CHANGED. AT THE END OF THE END, THE DECISION MUST BE ADOPTED BY THE PEOPLE OF RUSSIA. ”
During communication with journalists, it was noticeable that the current head of the Russian Federation did not have a clear succession strategy. He has repeatedly drawn attention to democracy and to the fact that such a responsible choice falls on the shoulders of Russian citizens. He explained to journalists that the process of re-electing a head of state is different from British principles.
Who will be the next president of Russia in the opinion of the current head of state?
Vladimir Putin said that it does not matter what specific actions the current head of state holds and whom he represents. The casting vote is given exclusively to voters residing in the country.
The president does not have any specific candidacy. Putin noted that he could support any person planning to take such an important post.
Representatives of the American media have previously said that the ruling elite is set to ensure that Vladimir Putin remains president in Russia. Some sources claim that Russia can unite with Belarus. In this case, the fact of the creation of a new state will be recorded and Vladimir Putin (if he will lead them) will bypass the Constitution. This is only an assumption, not confirmed at the official level. Political scientists say that the current president can transfer key powers to the Security Council or the State Council and leave the presidency, while directing these structures (now they are their head).
