BISHKEK, October 4. /TASS/. Voting at parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan is over with the voter turnout of 42%, a spokesman for Kyrgyzstan’s Central Election Commission told TASS on Sunday.
"At 20:00 local time (17:00 Moscow time), all the 2,338 polling stations across the country were closed," the spokesman said, adding that no gross violations of the election laws had been registered.
A spokesman for Kyrgyzstan’s police told TASS the elections had been held in a calm atmosphere. "A number of representatives of political parties were suspected of bribing the voters. All related materials have been referred to territorial election commissions," the spokesman said.
The parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan are held on party tickets for the second time in the country’s modern history. Fourteen political parties are vying for 120 seats in the parliament, for which ends they will have to score at least seven percent of the vote and at least o.7% in each of the republic’s seven regions, and the cities of Bishkek and Osh. As many as 2,338 polling stations were open in the republic and 36 more - abroad. A total of 2.761 eligible voters are registered in Kyrgyzstan. All polling stations were equipped with biometrial data telling devices.
