"Since Putin cannot remain as president after 2024 under the current rules, he needs to change the rules. This will potentially allow him to remain the dominant political actor even if he leaves the presidency," says Professor Brian Taylor. "The way he is going about constitutional reform now seems, at least in part, designed to give everything the veneer of popular support and democratic legitimacy." Taylor was interviewed for the Washington Post article "Putin’s plans post-presidency could see him wielding influence for life." 01/17/20
