Poetin op koers naar vijfde termijn als president van Rusland

By Ninian Carter

March 15, 2024 - March 17, 2024 - Vladimir Putin is certain to be elected for a fifth term as Russia’s president, extending a quarter-century of rule, and potentially aiding his stay in power until 2036

Vladimir Putin is set to win a fifth term as Russia’s president in March’s election, extending a quarter-century of rule by potentially keeping him in power well into the next decade.

In 2020, he amended the Constitution of Russia to exempt himself from presidential term limits until 2036, when he’ll be 83.

Putin is Russia’s longest-serving Kremlin leader since Soviet-era dictator Joseph Stalin who was in power for 10,636 days – Putin has served 8,844 days, as of March 17, 2024, when polling booths close.

All credible opposition to Putin is either dead, in prison or exiled, establishing his power over the country of 144 million people as absolute.
