Early Elections Scheduled for Deputies of Jogorku Kenesh in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is gearing up for early elections following the premature termination of mandates for several deputies of the Jogorku Kenesh (The Supreme Counci) in the Osh, Kara-Suu, and Batken single-mandate electoral districts.

The election campaign is currently in full swing and is set to continue until 8 a.m. on April 27, 2024. Since April 15, election commissions in the respective districts have been facilitating joint meetings between candidates and voters.

According to the Central Election Commission of the Kyrgyz Republic, a total of 30 candidates are vying for seats across the three single-mandate districts, with 10 candidates in Batken, 7 in Kara-Suu, and 13 in Osh single-mandate districts.

All candidates have previously signed a memorandum pledging to conduct their campaigns in compliance with the law. This includes commitments to refrain from engaging in negative campaigning, such as “black PR,” especially on social media platforms, as well as to reject bribery and the misuse of administrative resources for electoral gain.

As per the Decree issued by the President of the Kyrgyz Republic titled “On calling early elections of deputies of the Jogorku Kenesh of the Kyrgyz Republic in Batken single-mandate electoral district No. 2, Kara-Suu single-mandate electoral district No. 9, Osh single-mandate electoral district No. 7,” the early elections are slated to take place on April 28, 2024.
