They demand annulment of the voting results and invalidation of the elections.

«We hold the rally to express our opinion. Our party was written on the ballots as «Zhashyldar». Many, even ethnic Kyrgyz, could not understand that it was the Green Party of Kyrgyzstan. On Friday, SCNS officers also illegally and unreasonably detained three of our candidates without the permission of the Central Election Commission. This is pressure. Plus, there was information in the media that the party was allegedly removed from the race. Therefore, our Russian-speaking electorate either did not understand our name, or they thought that we were removed and we did not get votes. We had 2.4 percent of the votes before the system failure, and then — 0.4 percent,» one of the participants, Roman Remnev, told.
