ASHGABAT, January 07, /ITAR-TASS/. Akdzha Nurberdyeva has been reelected speaker of Turkmenistan’s Mejlis (parliament), a source in the Turkmen government told Itar-Tass.
Nurberdyeva has been occupying the post of parliament speaker since 2007, when Turkmenistan’s current President Gurganguly Berdymukhamedov began his first term in office.
A total of 125 lawmakers out of 283 were elected in the parliamentary elections on December 15, 2013. For the first time, Turkmenistan’s Party of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs that had been formed in 2012 took part in the elections. Before 2013, Turkmenistan had only one party, the Democratic Party of Turkmenistan, which had been led by the president prior to August 2013.
According to Turkmenistan’s Central Election Commission, the voter turnout in the December presidential elections was 91.33 percent of eligible voters. The lawmakers were elected for the term of five years.
On Tuesday, the new parliament had its first session.
