MOSCOW, February 24. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes it is too early to discuss whether Ramzan Kadyrov will remain Chechnya’s leader for another term or some other candidate will be proposed, presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov has told the media.
"Too early to say anything. There is an established tenure (of office of Chechnya’s leader). The president will make a decision when the term expires," Peskov said, adding that such decisions by the head of state were never declared in advance.
Kadyrov himself earlier said he had not made up his mind yet whether he would contest the post of Chechnya’s leader again. His current term expires in early April.
Chechnya’s leader will be elected on the annual election day, September 18, 2016. Kadyrov has led Chechnya since 2007.
