MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Ramzan Kadyrov said on Saturday he has filed documents to participate in the September elections of the head of Russia’s North Caucasus Chechnya republic.
"I have just submitted all the respective documents to the election commission. I have filed an application on the agreement to become a candidate," Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram account.
Kadyrov also stressed that "the upcoming elections will be the most honest and fair in global practice." "I see my goal in continuing the course of the First President of the Chechen republic, the Hero of Russia Ahmat Hadji Kadyrov, to serve the people, the Chechen Republic and our Motherland Russia!" he said.
He thanked the ruling United Russia party for its trust in him to represent it at the upcoming parliamentary elections. Kadyrov, who is now the acting Chechen head, led the regional group on the party list.
Kadyrov, 39, who has led the republic since March 2007, said earlier that he considered that his mission as the Chechen head was accomplished. His term expired in early April. Ten days before the term’s expiration, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to appoint Kadyrov as the acting head of Chechnya. The president expressed hope that Kadyrov would take part in the September polls.
