CEC chairman: Somebody interested in order to hamper annulling registration of R.Akmatbaev

In the opinion of Tuigunaly Abdraimov, chairman of the Central Election Commission, somebody is interested in order to hamper annulling registration of Rysbek Akmatbaev and delays to give out decision of the Pervomai court. He told at a press conference in Bishkek. In T.Abdraimovs words, only the Central Election Commission has a right to appeal against the Pervomai courts decision. In concordance with the Election Code, registration of a candidate may be cancelled five days before voting. Our representative in the Pervomai court could not receive the courts decision for 24 hours, - said T.Abdraimov. He informed journalists that if the Central Election Commission could not receive the courts decision today then it could not appeal against the courts decision to the Supreme Court and R.Akmatbaev could run for the parliament. The CEC received an information on March 28 that R.Akmatbaev was beyond the bounds of Kyrgyzstan (does not meet residential qualification) and in this connection registration of R.Akmatbaev was annulled. T.Abdraimov also said that President of Kyrgyzstan Kurmanbek Bakiyev has not interfered in activity of the Central Election Commission. Nobody put pressure upon me, he added. /Kabar/
