- The Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry thanked Mr Volodin for sending the CSTO PA Observer Mission
“We know that your Mission is always actively involved in monitoring elections in the Kyrgyz Republic,” said Azizbek Madmarov, deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic, welcoming the international observers from the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly. “We are convinced that the mission members will work actively and that observers will evaluate the electoral process objectively,” he said.
Azizbek Madmarov asked the international observers to convey his gratitude to Vyacheslav Volodin, Chairman of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly, Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, “for the assistance in deploying the Observer Mission.”
Azizbek Madmarov noted the importance of the election to the Jogorku Kenesh for the Kyrgyz Republic: “The changes that are taking place in our country – the constitutional reform, the governance reform – have a final stage: the parliamentary election, and we are paying close attention to it,” said the deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic.
He briefed the observers on changes in the electoral legislation of the Republic and reported on the measures that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic has implemented to organize the electoral process abroad and, accordingly, the organization of polling stations abroad. According to him, in the morning of November 28, 59 polling stations will open outside the Kyrgyz Republic, which is much more than during the Referendum; 84 thousand people are registered to vote abroad.
In turn, Aleksei Sandykov, coordinator of the CSTO PA international observers and deputy of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia, noted that the group includes parliamentarians from all CSTO Member States and expressed confidence that “all our countries consider participation in international observation an important component of parliamentary diplomacy.”
