CEC: 63 people registered to run for presidency in Kyrgyzstan

Sixty-three people have submitted documents to the Central Election Commission (CEC), of Kyrgyzstan to participate in early presidential elections, the press service said on Sunday.

The deadline for submitting the documents to the CEC was Nov. 14.

The commission has received documents from 65 people, while two of them withdrew the application. Among the applicants, were eight women and 55 men, the CEC said.

To be approved as candidates, all the applicants need to collect 30,000 signatures of voters in their support and pay electoral deposit of about 12,000 U.S. dollars to the account of the CEC. They also need to pass the test of the Kyrgyz language.

Candidates can drop their bids for the presidency until Jan. 7.

The election campaign will begin on Dec. 15, 2020 and end Jan. 9, 2021. Voting will begin on Jan. 10, 2021.

Early elections in Kyrgyzstan will be held due to the fact that ex-President Sooronbai Jeenbekov resigned amid protests to annul the results of the Oct. 4 parliamentary elections.
