The Bishkek Territorial Election Commission did not satisfy the application of the residents of the capital, who demanded to refuse Aziz Surakmatov’s registration as a candidate for mayor. This was reported by the press service of the Central Election Commission.
Recall that activists Kalicha Umuralieva, Svetlana Antropopva and Ruslan Bikkulov demanded not to register Aziz Surakmatov as a candidate for the post of mayor of Bishkek on the basis of the law on conflict of interest. The TEC refused to satisfy the application.
“The Bishkek TEC recommends that the Bishkek City Kenesh take the necessary measures to manage a possible conflict of interest, if any, and in accordance with the law on conflict of interest when electing and further assuming office of the mayor of Bishkek,” the statement said.
