MOSCOW, February 29 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Central Election Commission (CEC) of Russia estimates the number of military voters during the Russia's presidential election to be around 10 million people, Russian Defence Minister’s adviser Vasily Volkov told journalists on Wednesday.

“The number of military voters – servicemen of the Defence Ministry and other security ministries and agencies, members of their families, military retirees, as well as law enforcement officials - in general, according to the CEC of Russia, is about 10 million people,” he said. “This is a fairly decent amount of organised people who will not lie on the couch during the presidential election. It is a consolidated community. These people will go to the polls,” Volkov said.

According to him, “In Russia, of 110 million voters around 60-65 percent usually go to the polls.” “Ten million military servicemen and their family members of 60 million voters is also a rather large number, even 10 percent can affect the alignment of political forces, the election results,” Volkov said.

He predicted that “as many as 65-67 percent of the country’s voters may take part in the Russian presidential election on March 4."
