BISHKEK, September 25 (Itar-Tass) —— Kyrgyzstan finalised on Saturday registration of presidential candidates.
The republic’s Central Elections Commission reports that 20 candidates passed the registration procedure.
“There were 83 nominated candidates,” the source said. “But only 20 of them managed to collect 30,000 signatures, to make a deposit of 100,000 soms /about 2,200 dollars/ and to pass an examination in the state language.”
“They formed in time election funds, which may not exceed 50 million soms /1.1 million dollars/. Some candidates revoked their applications for political reasons. For example, leader of the Ata-Meken Party Omurbek Tekebayev /former deputy prime minister and former speaker of the parliament/ who claimed he did not want to repeat mistakes of the previous parliamentary elections, where reforming forces pulled votes from each other and finally lost to the opposition.”
Kyrgyzstan’s current President Roza Otunbayeva does not have a legal right to participate as a candidate in the presidential election due on October 30. From Sunday, September 25, Kyrgyzstan allows agitation activities.
