NIZHNY NOVGOROD, January 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The second round of Russian presidential elections due on March 4, 2012, will not be needed sooner, chief of the presidential staff Sergei Ivanov assumed to reporters on Friday.
Ivanov noted that he admits a theoretical opportunity that no candidate will gain more than 50% and a second round will be needed. However, “it is quite probable that the second round will not be needed at all,” Ivanov said. “I would like even to state that it is more possible than the first variant,” the chief of the presidential staff underlined.
