Atambayev wins Kyrgyz presidential election


08:40, November 01, 2011

BISHKEK, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Kyrgyz Prime Minister Almazbek Atambayev won Sunday's presidential election with over 60 percent of the vote, the Central Election Commission (CEC) said Monday.

Atambayev gained 62.88 percent of the vote after more than 95 percent of the ballots were counted, CEC chairman Tuigunaly Abdraimov told a press conference.

United Kyrgyzstan party leader Adakhan Madumarov and Ata-Zhurt party leader Kamchibek Tashiyev followed with 14.91 percent and 14.43 percent respectively.

Commenting on performances of the two rivals, Atambayev said: "They are real politicians, but they are surrounded by people who are pushing them toward ill-considered action. I think that we will find common language with Adakhan Madumarov and Kamchibek Tashiyev for the sake of a prospering Kyrgyzstan."

Atambayev said he had never used administrative resources for his election campaigns.

The Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) observer mission said the election was held in full compliance with the country's electoral law.

Although there were several irregularities concerning voter lists, they could not influence the poll's general course, said Sergei Lebedev, head of the mission and executive secretary of the CIS.

Walburga Douglas, representative of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Parliamentary Assembly, said free expression of will was guaranteed in the election and that there was no report of irregularities on the part of the candidates.

Kyrgyz Deputy Interior Minister Baktybek Alymbekov said the police did not record any serious conflicts on election day.
