Observers from 36 countries will follow Russian presidential election

Moscow, Mar 14 (Prensa Latina) Delegations from 36 countries and five regional organizations will attend the presidential elections in Russia, as observers, said the vice president of the Senate, Konstantín Kosachov.

“At the invitation of the parliamentary chambers, among the representations that will be in Russia, there are delegates from 30 national parliaments, as well as interparliamentary assemblies of international organizations such as the Commonwealth of Independent States,” Kosachov told the Sputnik agency.

According to the senator, representatives of the parliamentary Assemblies of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the Organization for Islamic Cooperation, and the Central American Parliament will also participate.

In Kosachov’s words, more than 200 parliamentary observers and dozens of electoral experts, numbers that could increase, have received so far their accreditations through the Federal Assembly (Russia’s bicameral parliament).

Russia has called presidential elections for March 17th. Voting in the elections will take place between the 15th and 17th, thus becoming the first presidential elections in Russia that will last three days.

The ballots include four candidates: Leonid Slutsky, for the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia; Nikolai Kharitonov, for the Communist Party of Russia; Vladislav Davankov, for New People; and the current president, Vladimir Putin, who is running as an independent.
