MOSCOW, February 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The headquarters of the presidential candidate Vladimir Putin will work at the Moscow City Mayor’s Office all night after the presidential election on March 4, head of Putin’s election staff Stanislav Govorukhin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“Our staff will be permanently deployed at the Moscow Mayor’s Office and we will stay there,” he said.
Putin’s election headquarters are deployed at Moscow Mayor’s Office on Novy Arbat Street. The premises are rented by the organizations, which support the All-Russia Popular Front, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “So, it (the election headquarters) has an ideological and material base of the All-Russian Popular Front,” he said earlier.
The idea to make the headquarters not just a technical body, but a working body of All-Russia Popular Front is very unusual, Peskov said. “In its activities the All-Russia Popular Front is not limited in time with the election campaign. This will help greatly to fulfil one of the main goals – the consolidation of the society,” he elaborated.
