Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Russian leader Vladmir Putin officially signed legislation that could keep him in office until 2036.
The law will allow him to run again for two terms, six years each, after his current term ends in 2024.
The signing is in the aftermath of the constitutional changes proposed by Putin last year. Russia has conducted public voting before.
With this, the 68 -year -old Putin has the potential to remain in power until the age of 83. He currently serves as president for the second time in a row and fourth in total.
Putin was president in 2004-2008, then 2008 to 2012. After that he became prime minister, the second time after 1999. He was re-elected as president in 2012-2018. This has continued from 2018 to the present.
In fact, a number of anti-Kremliners had shouted their opposition to this. However, the law is also wrapped in a number of other amendments that strengthen protection for citizens, such as the pension program.
Previously, the same was done by a number of other leaders, including Xi Jinping in China. The parliament lifted the term limit twice in 2018. With that, Xi will still be able to take office even though his term ends in 2023. Previous restrictions were created in the Deng Xiaoping era.
