Vladimir Putin to seek re-election for 2018 Russian presidency

Kremlin Press Service

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday he will contest the March 2018 elections to seek his fourth term as president.

Putin has been in power in Russian Federation since 2000.

After the term end in 2008, Vladimir Putin did not have the right to qualify again for a top state post, since the Russian Constitution forbids one person to serve as a president for more than two consecutive terms.

Russian Federation will move only forward and no one will stop its advance, Putin pointed out, adding: "Certainly, the foundation is always laid by people like you, the toilers in the broadest meaning of the word, comprising workers, scientists, engineers, designers, teachers and doctors", he emphasized adding such people "are not just the backbone of our country, but they are our country, they are Russian Federation".

On September 24, 2011, Medvedev invited United Russia to support Putin's candidacy for the 2012 presidential elections.

It is not yet clear whether Putin will run as an independent candidate or secure the backing of a political party - most likely the parliamentary majority party United Russia.

The dud announcement came a day after veteran Kremlin reporter, Andrei Kolesnikov, a favorite journalist of Putin, dropped a strong hint on social media that the president would take the plunge and officially declare his intention to seek re-election. "Thank you for your support, I will run for president". "The decision gives us trust in a better tomorrow because our president has proven with his deeds and his service to the nation that we can do a lot". Putin told workers. "I'm sure that together we will succeed". "The people know this and they can feel it", Poklonskaya was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti. Putin announced his intention during a meeting with workers of GAZ automotive factory in the city of Nizhny Novgorod.
