President extends deadline for revision of draft law on NGOs until October 1

The President of Kyrgyzstan extended the work of the group on revision of the draft law on Non-Commercial Non-Governmental Organizations until October 1.

The administration of the head of state published a draft of a new law on Non-Commercial Non-Governmental Organizations on November 2, 2022. It was reported that several thousand NGOs have been opened in the country since 1999, including dozens of branches and representative offices of NGOs from other countries. The authorities believe that it is necessary to regulate this area.

The working group to finalize the bill was formed by the order of the President Sadyr Japarov on February 8, 2023. It was given time until June 1, but now the deadline has been moved to October 1.
