Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday supported the proposal of involving young people from 14 to 18 in the electoral process as told the President that some young people doubted the integrity of the system, but to participate in the campaign «from the inside», was convinced of the opposite.

«About voting for young people from 14 to 18 years, and that they should participate fully in the election campaign, to form such youth authorities, it is a good idea, in my opinion. We are in some regions in the test mode going through it. But the idea is very good because it would allow young people to draw in real political life. As others have said, the young people doubted the effectiveness and fairness of the system, and when they started to work, I ascertained that in fact none of the concerns that they expressed,» — said Putin at a proposal, speaking at the event, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the electoral system of the Russian Federation.

The President stressed that the idea of engaging in real political life of young people in the early stages is useful and necessary, and instructed to examine this question.
