Central Election Committee of Kyrgyzstan will have to appoint the re-run elections of lawmakers to the Parliament within the next two weeks. Kabar agency reported that on Tuesday, citing Deputy Head of the Committee Abdizhapar Bekmatov.
"He specified that the electoral terms are cut by one-third. That is if earlier the Committee was supposed to hold the election within 90 days, now the figures are cut down to 60 days", the message says.
On October 5, several thousand protesters gathered at Ala-Too square in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. They detested the results of the parliamentary elections in this country. The protesters broke through the gates of the White House, the administrative building, where President and the Parliament work. One person deceased, and 590 people were injured in the protests.
President Sooronbay Zheenbekov claimed that a coup d'etat attempt occurred in Kyrgyzstan. He urged the Central Election Committee to look into the violations and cancel the results of the election. The Committee, in turn, recognized the outcome of the election as null and void.
