MOSCOW, January 19 (Itar-Tass) —— The head of Russia’s Central Election Commission, Vladimir Churov, has tried to raise the question of his resignation from the position of the CEC chairman, but most of his colleagues voted against discussing this issue.
Apparently, this time Churov hurried to outpace CEC member with advisory voting rights Kirill Serdyukov, of the Communist Party, who since the moment the official returns from the State Duma elections were declared in early December has invariably come out with such a proposal at every meeting of the CEC. The proposal was invariably rejected.
Under the law not a single branch of power, including the one that nominated him, is in the position to dismiss Churov (who joined the CEC under the presidential quota). The CEC may dismiss him from the position of its chairman, but he will remain a member of the CEC anyway. He can quit only of his own accord. Also, Russian legislation envisages several reasons for that, including a court conviction, loss of legal capability, etc.
