The Kyrgyz parliament has committed the Central Election Commission to restore the right of nine candidates who were objected to participate in the presidential elections, RIA novosti reported on Friday.

Their candidacy will be restored in 3-day term.

The October 30 elections will be the first elections after the change of power in April 2010. The election campaign began on Sept. 25.

Twenty of 83 original candidates were able to get candidate's mandate by collecting 30,000 signatures, paying candidate fee and passing the examination on Kyrgyz language.

Nine of the rest candidates disputed the CEC decision about their removal in the court and the Kyrgyz Supreme Court recognized the CEC's actions illegal.

With this regard the Parliament decided to finish the signature check for these candidates and committed the CEC to restore their candidacies.

The CEC office head Marat Sultanov told journalists that the parliament's decision is of recommendation character, but the commission will take it into consideration.

"CEC will register these candidates," he added.
