MOSCOW, May 5 (Itar-Tass) — Chairman of Russia’s Central Electoral Commission, Vladimir Churov, said Saturday he is not going to take any vacations even though the parliamentary and presidential elections in Russia are over.
“I continue sticking to the opinion that a vacation is a crime,” he said at a news briefing. “I still let my colleagues leave on vacations quite grudgingly.”
Churov recalled, however, that the authorities plan holding all the elections only once a year in the future and to shift the so-called ‘unified day of voting’ to September.
“There’ll be no vacations at all / at the Central Electoral Commission – Itar-Tass/ if the unified day of voting is appointed for September,” he said.
Churov recalled that the CEC is keeping under close control preparations for the forthcoming mayoral elections in two major Siberian cities, Krasnoyarsk and Omsk that will be held June 10 and June 17 respectively.
He made it clear that the execution of these control functions and other routine activities make the question about letting CEC staff-members take vacations out of place.
