Putin Foresees No Major Changes to Russian Constitution

The presidential term in office will not be extended, at least not while he is in power, Vladimir Putin assured the nation on Tuesday, as he fielded questions via a video link from cities and towns across Russia. President Putin said Tuesday that he foresaw no major constitutional changes to extend the presidential term, RIA-Novosti news agency reported.

Asked during a phone-in session whether he contemplated calling a national referendum on the issue, Putin said: “My ambition is to create conditions for the country’s long-term development and therefore I consider it unfeasible to introduce any radical changes to Russian laws, primarily the constitution.”
