ASHGABAT, January 7 (Itar-Tass) — Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov told a government meeting on Friday that observers from the United Nations, the OSCE and the CIS would arrive in Turkmenistan to monitor the presidential elections. His speech has been published by all national media outlets.
“The presidential elections will pass in conditions of ongoing lawmaking and constitutional changes. Several candidates will run in the race on an alternative basis.
