Putin signs a law on constitutional changes, will allow him two more terms



RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin on Saturday signed a law on constitutional changes that will allow him to run for another two terms as he expires, Tass reported.

The 68-page Constitution Amendments Bill was published by the Russian Judiciary on its website.



Tass writes that the document was forwarded to the Constitutional Court.

“On March 14, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation received a request from the president for amendments to the constitution,” which citizens will declare in a referendum, the court said in a statement.

Two new terms

Putin signed the document three days after it was adopted in the Russian parliament with only one vote against.

The law has yet to be approved by the Constitutional Court and Russian citizens will declare it in a referendum on April 22.

Under current law, Putin would not be able to run for president in 2024 because of a limited number of consecutive terms of office for two, but the envisaged changes to the constitution allowed him to run for two more six-year terms.

The Russian opposition called the decision “a usurpation of power.”

Other amendments to the highest legal act, among others, highlight the priority of Russian legislation over foreign ones, prohibit same-sex marriage and introduce “faith in God” as one of traditional Russian values.
