 RUSNET :: CIS Today :: 2005/11/01 :: Putin Pledges to Maintain Stability in Russia
But Putin said that the 2008 presidential election will be a “serious, difficult test for Russia” and stressed that full power and responsibility for the fate of the country will remain in his hands until the new president is sworn in.
He suggested such actions probably would not be necessary, saying that he believes “the political forces in Russia are mature enough to understand their responsibility to the people,” and said the election would be a fair one in which the candidate with the most votes will win.
Russia’s experience with power transfers purely by election is limited: Putin was made acting president by Boris Yeltsin before he was first elected in 2000, and Yeltsin became president when Russia was still part of the Soviet Union.

 The World Factbook 2004 -- Russia
Under PETER I (ruled 1682-1725), hegemony was extended to the Baltic Sea and the country was renamed the Russian Empire.
Repeated devastating defeats of the Russian army in World War I led to widespread rioting in the major cities of the Russian Empire and to the overthrow in 1917 of the imperial household.
In addition, a string of investigations launched against a major Russian oil company, culminating with the arrest of its CEO in the fall of 2003, have raised concerns by some observers that President PUTIN is granting more influence to forces within his government that desire to reassert state control over the economy.

The new map that was adopted by the Republican-dominated board gave the GOP an edge in winning the Texas House of Representatives, still controlled at that time by the Democrats.
During the 2002 elections under these new maps, DeLay aggressively fundraised for Republican candidates under his Texans for a Republican Majority PAC (TRMPAC).
The Federal Election Commission found that 'Americans for a Republican Majority Political Action Committee' (ARMPAC) misreported receipts and the ending cash balance for 2001 activities and the beginning cash-on-hand, receipts, disbursements and ending cash-on-hand for 2002.

Russian authorities have set March 9, 2008, as the date for the country's next presidential elections.
Russia's constitution bars President Vladimir Putin from running for a third consecutive term and the Russian leader has repeatedly said he has no intention of remaining in office.
But in a televised question-and-answer session in October, the Russian leader said he expects to play a role in setting government policy after leaving office and thus help guarantee the country's development.
