MOSCOW, May 11 (Itar-Tass) — Direct gubernatorial elections might be held in four Russian regions in October, Sergei Danilenko, a member of the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC), said on Friday.
“Office terms are expiring this fall for governors of the Amur, Belgorod, Bryansk, and Novgorod regions,” he said and reminded that a new procedure of governor elections comes into force from June 1, 2012. “The election procedure will be applicable to all governors who are not re-appointed before June 1,” he noted.
The next national voting day is planned in Russia on October 14.
