MOSCOW, September 11 (Itar-Tass) —— The chief of Russia’s Central Election Commission, Vladimir Churov, believes that his critics find it really hard to deal with an opponent like him, because he always tells the truth.
“My opponents find it really hard dealing with me. I never lie,” he told a student audience at the Russian Orthodox University.
“When I was a small kid, my parents kept telling me: ‘It’s far better to tell the truth and get punished. Don’t you ever lie,’” the CEC chief said.
He believes that the job of the CEC chief has very much in common with that of a preacher.
“I preach fair, free and sovereign elections,” he said.
