CEC to publish official results of Russian elections on Thursday

Moscow, Mar 18 (Prensa Latina) Russia's Central Election Commission (CEC) informed in this capital on Monday that the official results of the presidential elections will be announced on Thursday, March 21.

CEC Chairperson Ella Pamfilova said everything is planned to hold an official meeting of the Commission on the said day at 11:00 hours, Moscow time, where all results will be officially summarized.

“The country is huge; we need time to get the documentation from all places where voting took place. This requires time to calculate everything, so we weighed, analyzed our possibilities, and decided that it will be on Thursday, March 21,” Pamfilova stated.

The Russian presidential elections were held on March 15-17 for the first time in three days. This time, we use remote electronic voting in about a third of the country’s regions.

The CEC announced that after 99.43 percent of ballots were counted, incumbent President Vladimir Putin leads with 87.32 percent of votes.
