Elections 2021: Eight candidates receive written warnings

The deputy head of the Central Election Commission of Kyrgyzstan (CEC), Tynchtyk Shainazarov, told reporters that the CEC intends to toughly suppress violations up to disqualification of the race participants.

According to him, as for violations reflected in the Code of Violations, this is the prerogative of the election commission. «Speaking about the measures taken, I would like to note that to date, the CEC issued written warnings to eight candidates for deputies. This is a serious sanction. In case of receiving two warnings, the CEC has the right to cancel the registration of a candidate or lists of candidates of a particular party. This is a serious punishment — and this is an achievement,» Tynchtyk Shainazarov said.

He added that to date pre-trial proceedings are being carried out on six facts, one criminal case has been sent for consideration on the merits, a decision has been made to terminate criminal cases on 11 facts, the others have been written off to the nomenclature of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and its structural divisions in the regions.

Elections are scheduled for November 28 in Kyrgyzstan. At least 54 deputies of the Parliament are elected according to a proportional system (from open lists of candidates of political parties) in single electoral districts, 36 deputies are elected according to the majoritarian system in single-mandate constituencies.
