While monitoring the elections, the CIS observers have held a series of meetings, including meetings with the leadership of the Central Election Commission, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Democratic Party of Turkmenistan, the trustees of a number of candidates, and got acquainted with the activity of precinct election commissions in velayats and Ashgabat.
