Chechen referendum accomplished event - Veshnyakov
MOSCOW. March 23 (Interfax) - The referendum in the Chechen Republic can be conditionally regarded as an accomplished event, Alexander Veshnyakov, head of Russia's Central Election Commission, announced for the press in Moscow.

   "As the 50% barrier has been long overcome, this [fact] arouses no doubt at all," said Veshnyakov in reply to a question from Interfax.

   At the same time, he emphasized that officially, the referendum could be recognized as valid only after the passage of law-established procedures. [RU ASIA EUROPE EMRG VOTE] az <>
