Kyrgyzstan goes to polls for parliamentary vote

A Kyrgyz man votes at a polling station set up for home voters in the village of Gornaya Mayevka, 30km outside Bishkek, on October 3, 2015Ex-Soviet Kyrgyzstan headed to the polls on Sunday for a hotly-contested parliamentary vote, but the results are unlikely to change the country’s firmly pro-Russian trajectory. Polling stations across the majority-Muslim Central Asian country of six million opened at 0200 GMT, the election commission said, as 14 parties and more than 2,000 candidates battle for seats in the 120-member legislature. The Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan (SDPK), affiliated to current President Almazbek Atambayev, is expected to do well in the poll, but can only take a maximum of 65 seats due to a stipulation in the country’s constitution.
