CEC of Turkmenistan delays publication of presidential election results

As Russian news agencies reported earlier , citing Gulmurad Muradov , chairman of the Central Commission for Elections and Referendums of Turkmenistan, the results of the presidential election were scheduled to be announced on March 14.

As a result, on this day, according to the Turkmen state news agency TDH , a meeting of the CEC was held, at which the successes of the completed “social and political action” were discussed. However, the election results were not announced. The TDH writes that the election results will be made public "in the near future."

For what reason, the publication of the results of the elections held on March 12 is delayed, is not specified.

Earlier correspondents of "Chronicles of Turkmenistan" reported that voters in the villages of the Lebap velayat were warned that they should vote before 14:00, despite the fact that polling stations are officially open until 19:00. Officials from local governments explained the requirements by the fact that they must have time to calculate the data and send them to the city.
