Presidential election date in Kyrgyzstan to be known not later than on June 15

The deputies of the Kyrgyz Parliament must announce the date of the presidential election not later than on June 15. The member of Ata Meken faction, Almambet Shykmamatov, informed 24.kg news agency.

According to him, the campaign is likely to be held on October 15, therefore, according to the law, the CEC should start official registration of candidates and preparations four months before the voting day, which is June 15.

Amendments to the law on elections were adopted in the first reading. Presumably, within two or three weeks the Parliament will make changes, and we will be able to announce the date.
