BISHKEK, October 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Six Kyrgyz opposition candidates claim the use of administrative resources in the presidential election.
“The Central Elections Commission made unprecedented violations during the ballot,” Ata Zhurt candidate, ex-speaker Adakhan Madumarov said. “Administrative resources were used broadly in favor of candidate Almazbek Atambayev.”
A group of opposition candidates “will protect the rights of voters with every accessible method,” he said. The candidates demand verification of voters’ signatures “in at least one district,” he said.
They may also start protest rallies against the use of administrative resources in the presidential election.
The presidential election in Kyrgyzstan ended at 7:00 p.m. local time (5:00 p.m. Moscow time) and the count of votes started.
There are 16 candidates in the election. Local observers say that Prime Minister Atambayev has the highest chances to be victorious.
