MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) — About 2,000 journalists have already been accredited at the Elections 2012 Information Centre of the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC) that will receive information about the presidential election, CEC Chairman Vladimir Churov said on Tuesday at a meeting with voters from among the representatives of small and medium-sized businesses.
According to Churov, “A certain trend has shaped.” “Russian journalists more often prefer to work remotely, that is to follow the election procedure watching live broadcasts from the Information Centre,” he said. At the same time, “more and more foreign representatives are present at the Information Centre.” Churov said more than 800 foreign journalists have been accredited by now.
The Russian presidential election will be held on March 4. The CEC Information Centre will be working from March 3 to 5.
