The Russian parliament approved a sweeping constitutional reform in the third and final reading, a move that will allow President Vladimir Putin to stay in power for another 12 years after his current term ends in 2024.

The Kremlin-controlled lower house, the State Duma, endorsed a set of amendments to the constitution and a provision resetting the term count for Putin after the revised constitution goes into force.

It passed by a 383-0 vote with 43 abstentions, and was approved by the upper house, the Federation Council, several hours later.A nationwide vote on the proposed amendments is set for April 22.
