RUSSIA TO MODIFY CONSTITUTION TO ALLOW PUTIN TO CONTINUE TO HOLD POWER?

Russia will have a new Constitution in 1.5 years, by June 12, 2007. Director of the National Strategy Institute Stanislav Belkovsky told the Nezavisimaya Gazeta Tuesday...

The political expert emphasizes that the remaking means first of all introduction of several amendments according to which starting with 2008 the parliament will have the right to elect presidents (the way governors are appointed today).
THIS IS A VERY SCARY STEP... THIS MEANS PRESIDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO BE ELECTED - NOT BY THE PEOPLE - BUT BY THE RULING ELITE IN PARLIAMENT!

The new law provides for founding of a parliamentary republic with a declarative president at head (Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov supposedly) and an active prime minister, who may be Vladimir Putin or his successor.
SO, AFTER HIS PRESIDENCY, PUTIN WILL CONTINUE HIS POWER GRAB IN RUSSIA AS PRIME MINISTER. THE CZAR IS BACK....
