BISHKEK, September 30. /TASS/. Representatives of 11 international organizations will monitor the upcoming parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan, the Central Asian republic’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
The organizations include the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) of the OSCE, the European Parliament, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
The Central Election Commissions of several states, namely Russia, France, Latvia, India and Kazakhstan, have sent their observers to Kyrgyzstan, the ministry said. "In total, the number of international observers who have announced plans to monitor the elections reaches more than 500 people," it said.
The parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan on October 4 will be held for the second time in the country’s modern history on the party lists. A total of 14 political parties will fight for 120 seats in the new parliament. Local experts say some four or six of them will join the parliament.
The Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan is traditionally considered as one of the most experienced players on the country’s political arena. The Bir Bol (Unity) party, the Respublika-Ata-Jurt bloc and the Ata-Meken (Motherland) party also have good prospects.
All the polling stations will be equipped with special biometrical data reading devices and electronic ballot boxes, which will help avoid vote rigging, the authorities say.
