Luzhkov to Announce

MOSCOW () -- Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov will make an announcement Tuesday on his intentions to run for re-election, Interfax said Monday.

The agency reported that Luzhkov would make the formal announcement on Moscow Television's "Face the City" program Tuesday evening. With no serious challengers yet to his post, the influential Luzhkov stands a strong chance of re-election in polls set for June 20, the same day as presidential elections.
