Russia's president Putin suspends vote on constitutional change due to coronavirus

Coronavirus concerns have led to Russian President Vladimir Putin postponing a vote on constitutional change that would allow him to stay in power.
 
He said the public vote - previously due to be held on April 22 - would be delayed until a later date.
 
The proposed changes include scrapping a ban on allowing Mr. Putin to run for office again.
 
The changes have already been approved by parliament and Russia's constitutional court.
 
They would give Mr. Putin - who is serving his fourth presidential term and has dominated Russian politics for two decades - the right to serve two more consecutive terms.
