Putin, a Russian, said if the constitutional changes were made, he would ask for another word

MOSCOW Vladimir Putin is considering a new position as Russian president if voters approve constitutional changes, Russian news agencies said in an interview Sunday.

Russia will hold a nationwide vote on proposed changes to the constitution from June 25 to July 1, including a two-and-a-half-year amendment that would put Putin in office in 2024, when the current mandate ends.

These reforms are designed to keep Putin in power until 2036 and allow for a constitutional coup. The Kremlin said it was necessary to strengthen the role of parliament and reform social policy and public administration.

"If this (option) comes into the constitution, I will not rule out the possibility of contesting for office. We will see," Putin said in an interview with State TV, which was shown on Russia's Far East before the broadcast. In western Russia. "I haven't decided anything for myself yet."

Changing Russian votes already approved by parliament and the Constitutional Court will reduce Putin's presidency to zero. He cannot find a new word within the limits of the present constitution.

It is widely expected that these changes will be approved in the vote.

Putin, who has been in power for more than two decades and is now 67 years old, suggested hunting down a candidate could become a distraction to win if he doesn't run again.

"If this doesn't happen, in about two years - and I know from personal experience - the search for potential successors will change the general rhythm of work in many areas of government," the Interfax news agency told them.

"We must work, not in search of heirs".
