Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law letting him run for the president of Russia again.

The law was published on the official Internet portal of legal information on Monday (April 5). According to the reports number of provisions of the law were developed on the basis of amendments to the Constitution.

One of the newly introduced amendments is the restriction on the number of presidential terms for one person. It is applied to the incumbent president regardless of the previous presidential terms and allows the current head of state to contest the presidency twice.

Also, the law says that eligible to the office of the Russian president is any citizen of Russia no younger than 35 years of age who have been resident in the country`s territory for no less than 25 years and never had the citizenship or permanent residence permit of another state.

As reported this rule does not concern Russians who earlier had the citizenship of another country which eventually was admitted to the Russian Federation in accordance with the federal constitutional law.
