Putin May Have Just Become President for Life

President Vladimir Putin may have just won his ticket to stay in the presidency for life.

The State Duma and Federation Council have approved a package of constitutional amendments that include a clause that would allow any former or current president to run for office, regardless of the number of terms the candidate previously served.

Now the amendment must be approved by regional legislatures before the general public votes on it on April 22.
