From Yeltsin to Putin The Presidential Elections in Russia (1991-2004)

There have been four presidential elections in Russia : 1991, 1996,
2000, and 2004. From the essentially symbolic and demonstrative
nature of the first one, to the existence of a possible choice in the
second one, with Boris Yeltsin, the electoral process has moved toward
a depoliticization of the public sphere under Vladimir Putin. The administrative
mode of management distributes resources and power but
does not support any clear program. Putin reinforced this process
while consolidating his power at the time of the last election in
March 2004. As testified by most surveys, the president is supported
and trusted by a majority of the people. However, real power does not
rest on popularity but on governmental institutions, and the apparent
support granted the president offers no garantee of efficiency and
stability in the long run.
