Tursunbek Akun to litigate decision of Central Election Commission in court

Tursunbek Akun will litigate the decision of the Central Election Commission in the court. He informed 24.kg news agency about this.

Recall, the CEC recognized the signature sheets of the former Ombudsman Tursunbek Akun as invalid and on this basis refused to register him as a candidate for the presidency of Kyrgyzstan.

«I don’t agree with this decision, so I applied to the Inter-District Court of Bishkek,» Tursunbek Akun said and noted that the first court session will be held today, September 8.

The presidential elections in Kyrgyzstan are scheduled for October 15, 2017. The CEC registered 13 candidates for the main post of the country.
