Leader of Kyrgyz party failed in elections calls for legality
Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek, Oct. 12 / Trend N. Tanayev /
It is necessary to observe the law and follow the path of stabilization, Miroslav Niyazov, co-chairman of 'Butun Kyrgyzstan' party, said commenting on the controversy when his party reached five percent barrier needed for the elections.
There are disputes over 'Butun Kyrgyzstan' party. According to the preliminary data, it is not admitted to the parliament as the digital expression of a five percent barrier, necessary to overcome, was changed because a large number of citizens was included in the additional lists.
About 2 million 852,751 voters were included in the main list at the beginning of voting. At the end of voting there were 2 million 805,905 people in the main list, the CEC chairman Akylbek Sariev said. The voters who, for example, died or were included in the list twice, as well as those who received absentee ballots were excluded from the main list.
About 198,456 voters were included in additional lists. The final number of voters was 3 million 4,361 people. "Butun Kyrgyzstan" party has not overcome the five percent barrier, gaining 4.84 percent of voters.
"Now we are finding out the issue with the CEC. There were additional lists with a huge number of people, Niyazov told Trend over phone. I can not exactly say how these additional lists were established, but it causes doubts.
Since then the game, which is fraught with undesirable consequences, starts, Niyazov said. He said that one can hope that the CEC, which was objective, will not lose it.
"We will see what final decision the CEC will take. It is necessary to fight, because we have the appropriate rights. We will resolve this issue only legally," Niyazov said.
Parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan with participation of 29 parties were held on Sunday.
After 100 percent of the ballots were counted by the country's Central Election Committee, five parties were able to pass the 5 percent barrier to form the single-chamber parliament.
The list of the parties is topped by the nationalist Ata-Zhurt party with 8.88 percent of the vote and the Social Democratic Party (8.04 percent).
They are followed by the Ar-Namys party of former prime minister Felix Kulov with 7.74 percent of the vote, the Respublika party, which has not sided with either the interim government or the opposition (7.24 percent) of the vote, and the pro-constitution Ata-Meken party (5.6 percent).
