Pay attention to the up coming political elections

There is going to be an election for Prime Minister of Russia this coming May and Vladimir Putin would not be on the ballot because he is term limited. He served his two terms already. Now its time for someone new. So Russians has two choices; Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov or Chess Champ Garry Kasparov. Now lets keep in mind that Russian press and voters are do not enjoy the same freedoms as American press and voters. Although out the Putin administration, the press has been censored and anti-government protesters has continually has been arrested. Kasparov as been voicing his opposition to the Putin administration since retiring from chess in 2005. Kasparov supports civil libertis. Ivanov supports the continuation of the policies of the putin administration.
