The CEC invited observers from Cambodia to the Russian presidential election

Cambodian election observers have been invited to the 2024 Russian presidential election. This was reported by the Russian CEC.

Konstantin Mazurevsky, a member of the CEC of the Russian Federation, gave an invitation to the representatives of Cambodia. He works in the Asian republic as an international observer of elections of deputies to the National Assembly.

Earlier, the CEC invited observers from the central electoral bodies of the CIS countries to the presidential elections in Russia.

At the same time, they intend to effectively ban independent election observers. In May, deputies and senators of United Russia submitted draft amendments to the State Duma that would limit the possibility of monitoring the voting process of representatives of candidates and electoral associations, as well as journalists who do not have an employment contract with editorial offices.

Presidential elections in the Russian Federation will be held in March 2024. The current head of state Vladimir Putin has not yet officially announced his participation. In June, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the president would announce his decision to participate in the elections in a timely manner.

“Elections have a schedule, there is a start of the election campaign, it will be announced in due course. <…> When the time comes, we will inform you,” the Kremlin spokesman said.

At the same time, Chinese President Xi Jinping, who visited Russia in March, expressed confidence that Russians would support Putin in the election. “I know that next year there will be another presidential election in your country. Thanks to your strong leadership, Russia has made significant progress in the country’s prosperity in recent years. I am sure that the Russian people will strongly support you in your good undertakings,” he told Putin.

The Kremlin has already started to prepare a campaign plan. The presidential administration ordered to increase support for Putin in the 2024 elections compared to 2018, RBC wrote. At that time, according to the CEC, the head of state received over 76% of the votes.
