Kyrgyz CEC: Presidential candidate Tashiyev comes to polling station without documents and fails to vote

Presidential candidate Kamchybek Tashiyev came without documents and failed to vote at a polling station in the Naryn region, KyrTAG quotes the CEC special representative to Jumgal district of Naryn region Kanybek Nasybaaly uulu as saying on Sunday.

"In the morning Tashiyev came to the district election commission in the Aral village, where he was supposed to vote. However, after he arrived it became clear that Tashiyev came without passport and driving license. In this regard he failed to vote," he said.

According to the CEC special representative, Tashiyev has not yet returned with documents to the polling station.

It should be recalled that the presidential candidate Tashiyev on the threshold of elections said he intends to vote not in the place of residence, but in the Naryn region, "to be closer to the people".

Presidential elections started in Kyrgyzstan at 8:00 local time on Sunday.

Under the new Constitution, the President of Kyrgyzstan is elected for six years and only one term.
