Vladimir Putin votes for his almost-certain re-election as observers reveal ballot-stuffing
Vladimir Putin has voted in the Russian presidential election, in which he is almost certain to win a fourth term. The president cast his ballot at polling station number 2151 in the gold-topped headquarters of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, where he has voted since his first election to lead the country in 2000. A survey by a state pollster this month predicted that he would get nearly 70 per cent of the vote, but opposition leader Alexei Navalny has called for a voter boycott to depress the turnout forMr Putin's “re-appointment”. Asked after voting what result he would consider successful, Mr Putin responded: “Any that gives me the right to hold the office of president.” Mr Putin strolls past one of the presidential election posters that have been on display around the country as he arrives to vote Credit: Yuri Kadobnov/Pool via Reuters On Russia's Pacific Coast, where the polls opened first, the authorities were reporting record turnout. The head of the Kamchatka regional electoral commission said participation had reached nearly 64 per cent with two hours left to vote. But evidence of falsifications had already begun to tarnish the results. In the Kamchatka region alone, independent vote monitor Golos received more than 40 complaints, mostly about urns that were hidden from surveillance cameras. A voter in Ust-Kamchatsk said local school authorities had threatened teachers in a memo that they would be fired if they didn't vote. Videosfrom Chechnya, where Mr Putin won 99 per cent of the vote in 2012, and several other regions showed people stuffing ballots into urns. Mr Navalny tweeted a video from a state election monitoring site showing a woman stuffing ballots in the Primorsk region. Прелесть какая, посмотрите. Вброс. Приморский край, город Артём, УИК номер 326. pic.twitter.com/PJlStzW23B— Alexey Navalny (@navalny) March 18, 2018 The central electoral commission said it had suffered a cyberattack from foreign servers, but the incident occurred before most major cities had begun voting and did not disrupt operations. More than 97,000 voting places will be opened across the Russia's 11 time zones. Mr Putin, 65, first became president at the end of 1999, and another six-year term would put him in power even longer than Joseph Stalin. Despite a stagnant economy and 20 million people below the poverty line, average incomes are far higher now than when Mr Putin first took office. His approval rating shot even higher after the annexation of Crimea in 2014. A survey by a state pollster this month predicted that he would get nearly 70 per cent of the vote. Russian sailors cast their ballots in the Pacific Ocean port of Vladivostok Credit: Maria Borodina/AP Mr Navalny, who was barred from running for president due to a politicised embezzlement conviction, has called for a voter boycott and said he has recruited 26,000 electoral observers to catch falsifications. With Mr Putin virtually guaranteed to beat his meek challengers, all eyes will be on the turnout. The Kremlin has reportedly set its sights on 65 per cent participation, like in the 2012 presidential election. A number much smaller than this would be seen as an embarrassment. Alexei Navalny at the unveiling of a plaque in honour of slain Putin critic Boris Nemtsov in Moscow on Saturday Credit: Maxim Shemetov/Reuters Analyst Nikolai Petrov said that the total number of votes for Mr Putin could also be touchy. “He is guaranteed a high percent, there is no doubt about this, but the total number of votes could be significantly lower than last time, and then Kremlin will have to explain this,” he said, “because this will ruin the myth of an insanely popular leader.” Voters cast their ballots in Kamchatka in the far east Credit: Alexander Petrov/AP Lines have stretched out the door this week at the Navalny office where volunteers can sign up to become electoral monitors and undergo training. “The big thing we learned is that if we see something that shouldn't be happening we should immediately document it by filming on our phones,” said Yana Chechurova, a student who had just been trained. “Our main task is to count the number of votes so they don't falsify the turnout.”

German interior minister declares 'Islam does not belong' in the country
Angela Merkel’s new government got off to a rocky start on Friday as the chancellor and her interior minister clashed publicly over the role of Islam in Germany society. Horst Seehofer, who became interior minister this week under a coalition deal, used his first interview since taking office to declare “Islam does not belong in Germany”. Mrs Merkel lost no time in slapping down the minister, telling a press conference: “Muslims are also part of Germany, and so their religion is just as much a part of Germany”. Mr Seehofer’s controversial remarks echoed last year’s election slogans from the nationalist Alternative for Germany party (AfD), which campaigned on an anti-Muslim platform. But they were most clearly aimed as a broadside against Mrs Merkel, who famously declared “Islam belongs in Germany” in a 2015 press conference after opening the country’s borders to over 1 million asylum-seekers. “Islam does not belong in Germany,” Mr Seehofer told Bild newspaper. “Germany is shaped by Christianity. That means not working on Sundays and celebrating religious holidays such as Easter, Pentecost and Christmas. Horst Seehofer talks to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the German parliament in Berlin Credit: AP Photo/Markus Schreiber “Of course the Muslims who live with us belong in Germany. But that doesn’t mean we should give up our national traditions and customs.” The leader of Mrs Merkel’s Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU), Mr Seehofer was the leading opponent of her refugee policy and the dispute almost ended the longstanding alliance between the two parties. But they patched up their differences ahead of last year’s election and Mr Seehofer was given control of migration and asylum policy as interior minister under the new coalition deal. His remarks on Friday suggest he is ready to reopen the feud in government. Mrs Merkel responded angrily to Mr Seehofer’s comments. “We want an Islam based on the constitution and compliant with constitutional law,” she said on a visit to Paris. “I think we must do everything we can to allow religions to live together in peace.” Mr Seehofer also came under attack from Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the chairman of Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrat party (CDU) who is widely seen as her chosen successor. Profile | Angela Merkel “Freedom of religion undoubtedly belongs in Germany, just as the Muslims in Germany, together with their faith, belong in our country,” Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer said. More than 4 million Muslims live in Germany, 1.9 million of whom are German citizens. More than 60 per cent are of Turkish heritage and were living in Germany long before Mrs Merkel’s decision to open the borders to asylum-seekers. Mr Seehofer later sought to clarify his remarks. “Our country Germany has been shaped by Christianity for centuries. That's why it’s wrong to say Islam belongs in Germany, ” he said. “Of course we have tolerance and respect for other religious communities. And of course the Muslims living in Germany belong in Germany.” It was Wolfgang Schäuble, the former finance minister and current speaker of the German parliament, who first declared in 2006 that “Islam is part of Germany and Europe”. The phrase at the centre of the dispute,“Islam belongs in Germany” was first coined in 2010 by Christian Wulff, the Germna president at the time, and later taken up by Mrs Merkel.
