Parliamentary elections unite the country and presidential - pose split threat. The President of the Kyrgyz Republic Almazbek Atambayev told reporters today.
The President noted that in general, a lot of work on preparation for the elections has been done. "But equipment is equipment, it will fail. We must be ready for it. But any additional inspection, which is created on the way of electoral fraud -is an advantage. And one should not spare money and time on this. For this people died and served sentences in prison. It's not a walk in the pub, it's the election of country's future. It should be treated as such," the President said.
He added that "smart boxes did not work already" at some polling stations in the morning. "But this is a natural process. As they say, it is the first step that is troublesome. But we have to go this way, because the next elections in the country in 2017 are the presidential election. It is much more responsible thing. Parliamentary elections unite the country: every party has representatives from all regions and nations, and presidential ones pose a split threat," Atambayev said.
According to him, the parliamentary elections-2015 are important because they will "give people confidence that elections in two years be also accurate." "A man, who earned 14 percent, would not say that he won the election. Therefore, we should not spare money and time for the elections. Moreover, 90 percent of the costs were covered by a grant and support from other countries," the President said.
