A proposal to hold the early presidential election in September 2020 was voiced in Russian State Duma. The author of the corresponding idea is leader of the Communist Party Gennadiy Zyuganov, Interfax reports.
"In September, I do not exclude that there may be early presidential elections," Zyuganov said at the Russia-2024: Left Turn or National Disaster conference.
He announced the holding of a forum of national-patriotic forces in late January - early February, at which a government of public confidence will be formed and a common program will be developed for participation in parliamentary and possible early presidential elections.
The next presidential election in Russia should be held on March 17, 2024. Vladimir Putin will not be able to participate in them since he is the head of state for the second term in a row.
