Russia entered on Saturday into the so-called ‘day of silence,’ prior to March 4 presidential elections, when any form of election propaganda is prohibited.


 

Election campaign billboards, which were mounted earlier, could remain in their places on condition that they are situated not closer than 50 meters (164 feet) from a nearest polling station.

The ‘day of silence’ is aimed to give a voter an opportunity to make a final decision on his choice of a future president without being pressured by any election propaganda.

The post of president, who this year will be elected for a term of six years for the first time, is being fought over by the following candidates: current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov, Head of the Liberal Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky, Sergei Mironov from A Just Russia, and independent candidate Mikhail Prokhorov.
