Yesterday, a two-day meeting of the Young Professionals Club ended in Moscow, its theme was the current state and prospects of the party-political system in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, which will soon hold parliamentary elections. President of the Center for Advanced Studies Sergey Masaulov spoke about the pre-election situation in Kyrgyzstan.
According to him, the situation in the country is stable. "The vast majority understand that drastic measures lead to nothing. In addition, President Almazbek Atambayev has played the role of moderator in the political processes," Masaulov noted, adding that Atambayev did not abuse his power, earning the trust of voters, which, in turn, means a transition to an electoral cycle of a new type.
The expert drew attention to the change of attitude of labor migrants from Kyrgyzstan to ongoing political developments at home. If before their turnout was very low, now, with the accession of the republic to the EAEU, their situation has changed, they received social preferences in the pension and health insurance spheres, and as a result their motivation to participate in the vote increased.
