Putin sends amendments to parliament to change presidential term limits




Moscow, Jan. 20, 2020 Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted amendments to parliament on Monday to change the presidential term limits, according to the bill posted on the legislature’s website.

Putin wants to remove the word “consecutive” in the current constitution’s stipulation that the president cannot serve “more than two consecutive terms”.

Putin had suggested the amendment among a raft of constitutional reforms during his state of the nation speech last week.

The reforms include giving more power to the prime minister and the State Council, prompting speculation that Putin is preparing options for retaining a leadership position when his current term ends in four years.
