The territories of all these districts have been defined.

During meetings of primary organizations of the Democratic Party, the Party of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, the Agrarian Party, public organizations and associations of Turkmenistan, groups of citizens of the country, the most worthy candidates to the electoral commissions have been nominated. Meetings and discussions have been organized to nominate representatives to the electoral commissions, the majority of whom are specialists working in various sectors of the national economy.

As the participants in meetings emphasized, the upcoming elections will be held on the principles of alternativeness, transparency and openness, becoming another confirmation of Turkmenistan’s adherence to the democratic path of development and the success of progressive reforms in all areas of public affairs.

The ceremonies of presenting certificates of a standard pattern to newly elected members of the electoral districts have taken place in the appropriate electoral commissions.

For the moment, with the participation of the Mejlis deputies and the CEC representatives, training seminars have been held for the velayat, etrap, city and district electoral commission members, which have given their participants a possibility to become broadly acquainted with amendments to the national electoral legislation, as well as with amendments and addenda to the Electoral Code of Turkmenistan, their official duties and the upcoming elections procedure.
