KULOB, October 25, 2013, Asia-Plus – Two women from Kulob who supported Oynihol Bobonazarova’s candidacy for the 2013 presidential election have reportedly been summoned for questioning to the State Committee for National Security (SCNS)’s office in Kulob.

Ms. Mukarrama Habibova, chairperson of the department for women’s affairs, Islamic Revival Party (IRP) organization for the city of Kulob says two local women who supported Bobonazarova’s candidacy were summoned for questioning to the SCNS’s office in Kulob.

“Security officer, Parviz Nazarov, has asked them to write an explanation why they rashly sign any papers offered to them,” Ms. Habibova said.

We will recall that IRP’s nominee for president, Ms. Oynihol Bobonazarova, fell short of the necessary signatures required.

The signature-gathering processing concluded at 6:00 pm of October 10 but the CCCER extended the registration deadline until October 11 in order to give Ms. Bobonazarova more time to hand over the required 210,000 signatures of her supporters.

Bobonazarova’s campaign staff, however, narrowly missed collecting the required number of signatures to register for the poll.  Her campaign staff members reportedly gathered only 201, 236 signatures to support her candidacy.

The Tajik Association of Reformist Forces (TARF) representatives have argued that more than 201,000 signatures collected to support Ms. Bobonazarova’s candidacy make her eligible, since the law requires the support of 5 percent of the country's estimated 4 million eligible voters.
