DUSHANBE, June 20, 2016, Asia-Plus – Sughd regional legislature (Majlis) has nominated Jamshed Jourazoda, rector of Khujand-based Tajik University of Law, Business and Politics, to represent Sughd in the Majlisi Milli (Tajikistan’s upper house of parliament).

According to the Central Commission for Elections and Referenda (CCER), Jourazoda will replace former Khujand Mayor Rajabboy Ahmadzoda, who was appointed to head the State Committee for Land Management and Geodesy.

By-elections to the Majlisi Milli will take place on July 17.

Unlike Tajikistan’s lower chamber (Majlisi Namoyandagon) of parliament, lawmakers in the Majlisi Milli do not compete in a direct general election.

Three-fourths of the total number of members of the Majlisi Milli shall be elected at joint meetings of people’s deputies of the Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region and its towns and districts, regions and their towns and districts, Dushanbe city and its districts, towns and districts subordinate to the center, on the basis of indirect elections by means of secret ballot.  The Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region, regions, Dushanbe City, towns and districts subordinate to the center have an equal number of representatives in the Majlisi Milli.

One-fourths of the members of the Majlisi Milli shall be appointed by the President of the Republic of Tajikistan.

Each former President of the Republic of Tajikistan shall be the life member of the Majlisi Milli, if he doesn’t refuse to use this right.
