MOSCOW, March 27 (Itar-Tass) – Delegates from Russia’s Central Election Commission may take part in monitoring the April 14 early presidential election, due on April 14, CEC chief Vladimir Churov told Itar-Tass.
He said “the group will include CEC Secretary Nikolai Konkin, CEC member with advisory rights from the CPRF, Kirill Serdyukov, and also members of the CEC staff. This group will go. I won’t,” Churov said.
He added that CEC representatives would go to Venezuela at the official invitation of that country’s election commission. Konkin was an international observer at last October’s elections of the Venezuelan president, in which Hugo Chavez emerged the winner.
The early presidential election had to be called after the Venezuelan leader’s death.
Russia’s CEC has no agreement on cooperation with Venezuela. But, as Konkin said earlier, this treaty is in the preparation phase.
