The official number of candidates running for president of Kyrgyzstan is 57 people, the Central Election Commission told AKIpress.
No additional people filed applications to the CEC as of August 7, the report said.
A total of 59 candidates were earlier running for president. Two people – Anvar Sartayev and Nusret Mamedov – withdrew their applications.
Four people are listed among those who did not manage to open the election funds within 5 days after submitting their applications to the CEC for nominating their candidacy – Igor Trofimov, Mirlan Sherikul uulu, Marta Kydyraliyeva and Mukanbaijan Amanbayev. Trofimov did not show up at the state proficiency test.
The CEC has not yet made a decision on these candidates, the statement said.
Ruslan Junusov might be also withdrawn from the list as he failed to pass the Kyrgyz language proficiency test.
