BUJUMBURA March 21st (ABP) – The Speaker of the National Assembly of Burundi Mr. Daniel Gélase Ndabirabe returned, Wednesday March 20, 2024, from a work mission carried out in the Federal Republic of Russia where he participated in the presidential elections of that country as an international observer.

On his return, he revealed to the press that those elections, which lasted three days, went well. The Speaker of the National Assembly noted that he had the opportunity to visit the polling stations where he noted that the population uses two means to vote, namely the use of papers (classic method) as well as the electronic use adding that those who use electronic means do not exceed two minutes to send their votes to the database.

Mr. Ndabirabe also made it known that in the Federal Republic of Russia we do not carry out campaigns to prepare for elections, specifying that the effective means of carrying out electoral campaigns is to show what you have achieved instead of saying what you have done.

Daniel Gélase Ndabirabe noted that the President of Russia was voted in with 87%, which shows that the Russian population is proud of President Vladimir Putin.

He also indicated that Vladimir Putin has done everything possible to develop Russia economically and in terms of security, which pushes the population to enjoy his authority.

Daniel Gélase Ndabirabe did not fail to point out that Vladimir Putin applied for the post of president as an independent candidate, stressing that the other candidates who were in competition with him represented their political parties.

On behalf of the National Assembly of Burundi and on behalf of all Burundians, Mr. Ndabirabe congratulated President Vladimir Putin on his victory before pointing out that the latter will serve as an example to the Burundian people to highlight achievements during the electoral campaigns instead of saying what they are going to do.

He finally noted that the elections in Russia took place in complete freedom and transparency while adding that even representatives of independent national commissions from other countries including that of Burundi took part in that activity.
