    MOSCOW, MARCH 13 (RIA Novosti) - Members of the Russian Government intend to exercise their constitutional rights March 14, voting in the course of nationwide presidential elections.

    Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov will vote at 8.00 a.m. Sunday at a polling station, which is located inside school No. 87 on Nikolayeva street, reports the government-information department.

    The Russian Prime Minister will be among the first to vote because Moscow's polling stations open at 8.00 a.m.

    School No. 87 is located 200 meters from the Government House. Previously, Mikhail Kasyanov used to vote there.

    Talking to RIA Novosti, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov said he will vote for sure March 14.

    I vote all the time together with my family, Mr. Zhukov noted, adding that he will vote at a school on Leninsky Avenue.

    The participation of Russian citizens in presidential elections will serve as a real-life guarantee of this country's democratic development, Mr. Zhukov stressed.

    Minister of Finance Alexei Kudrin, who lives at a state dacha near Moscow, doesn't intend to take a voting certificate and to cast his ballot at a nearby polling station. Kudrin will vote at the place of registration, that is, at a Presnya district polling station, Alexei Kudrin's spokesman Gennady Yezhov noted. Kudrin plans to vote together with his family, Yezhov added.

    Education and Science Minister Andrei Fursenko, who still lacks an apartment in Moscow, thus intends to vote in St. Petersburg, i.e. the place of his registration.

    Russia's Natural Resources Minister Yury Trutnev also intends to vote at the place of registration, that is, in Perm, a regional center in the Volga federal district.
