Russian State Duma (the lower house of parliament) member Valentina Tereshkova has called for removing limits on presidential terms, making it possible for the incumbent head of state to run for president once again, APA reports citing TASS.

"It’s not about him, it’s about us, the Russian people, and our future. That said, why overcomplicate the matter and create unnecessary obstacles? We need to plan everything honestly and openly. Or perhaps, presidential term limits should be removed from the Constitution," she said at a State Duma meeting on Tuesday. "If this is what the situation requires, if this is what the people want, then the incumbent head of state should have a legal opportunity to run for president in accordance with the amended Constitution," Tereshkova added.
