DUSHANBE, April 29, 2016, Asia-Plus – Tajik Ambassador to Russia Imomuddin Sattorov yesterday met in Moscow with the CIS Executive Secretary Sergey Lebedev.

According to the CIS Executive Committee press service, the two discussed various aspects of Tajikistan’s participation in integration interaction within the CIS areas.

A special attention was reportedly paid to organization of the work of the CIS mission to monitor the constitutional referendum that will take place in Tajikistan on May 22 this year.

Lebedev, in particular, noted that 90 CIS observers would monitor the upcoming constitutional referendum in Tajikistan.

To-date, 24 CIS observers representing the Federal Council of Russia’s Federal Assembly, the CIS Parliamentary Assembly and the CIS Executive Committee have been accredited. 

We will recall that six representatives of the CIS, led by the CIS Executive Committee Deputy Chairman Vladimir Garkun, and 18 representatives of the CIS Parliamentary Assembly (PA), led by the CIS PA Secretary-General Aleksey Sergeyev, have already been registered with Tajikistan’s central electoral commission.

Tajikistan is set to hold a referendum on constitutional amendments that would allow incumbent President Emomali Rahmon to run for office for an indefinite number of times.
