MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says the outcome of either parliamentary or presidential elections may not be described as predetermined.
“It is up to the people to make a choice,” he said in an interview with Russian television. “What pre-determinacy you are talking about? Let the people decide whom they will vote for,” he said. “Let them decide either to support this or that political force or to vote in down.”
According to the president, the current situation is by no means a fixed one and any politician may either win or lose the elections. “This is what is called democracy,” he stressed.
