Fiji Sun - - WORLD NEWS - Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin.

Moscow: Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin has said that he does not rule out the pos­si­bil­ity of bid­ding for an­other pres­i­den­tial term if con­sti­tu­tional amend­ments are adopted.

“I have not de­cided any­thing for my­self yet. I don’t ex­clude the pos­si­bil­ity of this. If the con­sti­tu­tion al­lows the op­por­tu­nity, we will see,” Mr Putin told a TV in­ter­view aired on Sun­day.

“It is nec­es­sary to work, not to look for suc­ces­sors,” he said. Rus­sia will hold a ref­er­en­dum on a set of con­sti­tu­tional amend­ments on July 1, which, if passed, will en­able Putin to par­tic­i­pate in the 2024 pres­i­den­tial race.
