In the program of Konstantin Semin, they recalled the “forecast” of Vladimir Zhirinovsky that by 2024 there would be no more presidential elections in Russia. The LDPR leader presented his forecast in 2018. Then he said that in 2018 there were the last presidential elections, and later the State Council will sit and choose a figure with presidential powers.
Vladimir Zhirinovsky 2 years ago:
They are tired of rigging the election. It will be like in China, like Xi Jinping. It will be for life. They removed the restrictions on two terms. That is, Asia ... We are Asia.
According to Konstantin Semin, it is completely unclear why the country needs institutes of political scientists and other knowledgeable experts, if all of them are successfully replaced by one 73-year-old man.
The Agitprop also contains a statement by Zhirinovsky from the rostrum of the State Duma on the day of the approval of Mikhail Mishustin as new prime minister.
They require a left turn. There will be no left turn. There will be a right-liberal course. Don’t you know who appoints the ministers or something ... Unfortunately, we have a presidential regime under the Constitution. He (the prime minister) himself does not know, they will give him a list, and that’s it.
Konstantin Semin notes that the process is reminiscent of canning vegetables, when "the brine is already ready, it remains to roll everything into jars."
