President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov signed a decree on setting elections of deputies of local councils of the Kyrgyz Republic.

The elections will be held on Sunday, April 11.

The Central Commission for Elections and Referendums (CEC) has been instructed to organize holding of elections to the aforementioned representative bodies of local government in accordance with the law.

The Government should allocate the necessary financial resources in accordance with the CEC cost estimate.
