MOSCOW, September 26 (Itar-Tass) — The head of Russia’s central election commission, Vladimir Churov, said he plans to leave his post after his term of office expires – in four and a half years.
In reply to journalists’ questions at the Itar-Tass news conference he as always declined to make any political assessments.
“I will never reply either on “steam engines”, or on “locomotives” or on leaders (of the parties). Wait four years and a half and you will read everything in my memoirs,” Churov said.
When asked, whether he will run for the third term, the CEC chairman gave a firm answer “never.” “I can say this for sure.”
Churov has been heading the country’s central election commission since March 2007. He was nominated to this post by the parliamentary faction of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) and in March 2011 - by the president.
