NOVO-OGAREVO, October 18 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin believes it would be right if the country returned to direct elections of governors and says he’s not going to denounce them.
“It would be right to give the right of vote to citizens (when electing the heads of the regions and territories of Russia) alongside with handing over all the responsibilities,” Putin said at a meeting with representatives of the United People’s Front on Thursday.
Putin added that in future the country should also switch over to election of members of the Russian Federation Council, the upper chamber of the Russian Federal Assembly (parliament).
