      SUPPORT BUILDS FOR TATAR PRESIDENT'S RE-ELECTION BID.
      Emergency Situations Minister Shoigu and Russian Deputy Prime
      Minister Valentina Matvienko have both endorsed Tatarstan
      President Mintimer Shaimiev's candidacy in the 25 March
      presidential poll, RFE/RL's Kazan bureau reported on 14 March
      quoting Interfax-Eurasia. Shoigu characterized Shaimiev as "a
      politician on the federal scale, one of the most vivid
      personalities on the political stage of the Russian
      Federation." At a meeting in Kazan on 12 March, the
      Tatarstan-New Century party headed by Tatarstan State Council
      speaker Farit Mukhametshin and presidential adviser Rafael
      Khakimov similarly pledged its backing for Shaimiev, who
      faces four rival candidates in the ballot (see "RFE/RL
      Newsline," 21 February 2001). LF
