ST. PETERSBURG, April 29 /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that Russia’s forthcoming parliamentary election campaign should be honest, fair and free from any violations.

"It is important that the campaign passes without violations in absolutely honest and fair competitive struggle," Putin said in his speech at a session of the Council of Lawmakers, reminding its participants of elections to the Russian State Duna and regional legislatures slated for autumn.

He urged the deputies to remember that honest and fair struggle during the election campaign is the backlog of people’s confidence in the elective bodies of state power and the basis of their legitimacy.

Putin has described the election campaign as a form of "direct dialogue with people." "We need to use it as a chance to promptly react to questions posed by citizens - I mean both federal and regional problems," the Russian president said.
