Zhanar Akayev to get deputy’s seat

The Supreme Court of Kyrgyzstan upheld the decision of the Administrative Court of Bishkek on the basis of statement of Alliance party.

Thus, the Alliance candidate Zhanar Akayev will receive a deputy’s seat. The resolution of the Central Election Commission (CEC) was declared invalid.

Earlier, the political organization opposed the decision of the CEC to change the provision on the observance of gender quotas in the distribution of deputy mandates.

Earlier, the CEC made changes to the resolution «On the organization and procedure of voting, the results of voting and determining the results of elections by election commissions in the elections of the President and deputies of the Parliament» dated June 26, 2020.

A change was made to the clause concerning the distribution of seats between candidates of different genders. According to the amendments, the candidate for deputy Zhanar Akayev did not enter the Parliament. The mandate, it was assumed, could have been received by Toktobubu Orgalcha. Zhanar Akayev believes that the CEC has doubtfully changed the rules of the elections.
