Iedinaia Rossia (United Russia), the party of the president, currently prepares a law that would allow Vladimir Putin to run for a third period of mandate. Without openly questioning the principle that opposes three consecutive mandates, the Committee of the Duma presided over by Alexander Moskalets suggests that only mandates completely fulfilled should be taken into account. Then, a resignation from the president before the end of his second mandate would be enough to enable him to run for a third term.
