Polls have opened in Russia’s presidential election, which is widely expected to hand Vladimir Putin a fourth term in power – meaning he could lead the country until 2024.

According to Russia’s constitution, no president can run beyond two consecutive terms, but it is unclear who will emerge to replace Putin.

Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from Moscow.

Alex Bajan says:

Russians are casting their ballots in the presidential election, as polls opened from the Far East region of Kamchatka to the western exclave of Kaliningrad. Eight candidates are vying for the post of president.
The vote will last for a total of 22 hours, as Russians across all the country’s 11 time zones, spanning from Kamchatka and Chukotka in the East to the westernmost enclave of Kaliningrad, will be heading to polls on Sunday.

First polling stations welcomed early voters at 8:00 am local time [20:00 GMT] on Saturday in Kamchatka and Chukotka regions, followed by the island of Sakhalin an hour later. In Moscow, the voting started nine hours later, at 5:00 am GMT, and will proceed until the polls close at 8:00 pm
