MOSCOW, November 25 (Itar-Tass) —— At its extraordinary session on Saturday, November 26, the Russian Central Election Commission will approve the schedule of the run-up and holding of the presidential elections, CEC Secretary Nikolai Konkin said on Friday. The CEC approved this draft schedule back in early October. The document has seven clauses according to the main stages of the presidential election campaign.
Under the schedule right after the official start of the election campaign the candidates will receive the right for nomination. They should file the documents for registration in the CEC no later than 6 p.m. Moscow time on January 18. The law gives ten days to the CEC to consider the registration of a candidate. So, already in late January the country will learn the presidential candidates for the presidential elections on March 4, 2012.
As for the results of the presidential elections, the CEC makes public the preliminary results in the morning after the Election Day that will be March 5, 2012. The official results will be reported not later than on March 15 under the legislation. The practice of federal elections shows that the CEC usually sums up the official results quicker.
Konkin also noted that “most regulatory acts on the presidential election campaign were already approved.” The makeup of the working group for the reception of documents from the candidates was approved on Thursday.
Earlier on Friday the Federation Council approved a resolution to set the Russian presidential elections on March 4, 2012. The resolution was officially published on Friday. So, the presidential election campaign was launched more than a week before the State Duma elections.
