The President of Russia advised US to switch to direct elections
The United States, if important to them justice, it would be to change the electoral law and to make presidential elections direct. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with NBC.
The Russian leader pointed out that the American Constitution and election legislation is constructed in such a way that the candidate can vote a greater number of electors, which is a smaller number of voters. “And such cases in the history of the United States are. Really?” — said Putin.
“So if we talk about some socio-political justice, then we need to change is the electoral law to bring the case to enable the direct secret ballot elected the head of state and was a direct calculation, which can be easily controlled,” said he.
“That’s all. And there’s nobody to point to and blame someone else for their troubles to those who lost the elections”, — said Putin.
