Another hope crashed: Central Election Commission deregisters Edil Baisalov

Kyrgyzstan elections look very much like a theater play or soap opera with every day bringing a new scandal and illogical (well, logical to the central election commision) actions. Today Edil Baisalov was deregistered by Central Election Commision due to his doubts of the process of printing and protection of election ballots.   

The whole process of ‘punishment’ for speaking out and doubting reminds of the patriarchical families very common in Kyrgyzstan where doubting and challenging the authority is severely punished.  The punishment usually includes cutting the child off from financial support and social networks.

 I really hoped that Baisalov would make it to Parliament because he has very liberal views and approaches.  I am sure he’d promote gender equality.
