March 23, 2018 in the Central Commission for Holding Elections and Referendums in Turkmenistan has held a meeting with the Chairman of the Executive Committee - Executive Secretary of the CIS Sergey Lebedev, who arrived in Ashgabat as the head of the CIS Observation Mission for the elections.

As has been noted at the meeting, the Turkmen electoral legislation has undergone significant changes in the direction of greater openness, transparency, democracy and full compliance with universally recognized norms of international law over the years. For the first time the right to nominate candidates has been used by three political parties: the Democratic Party, the Party of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and the Agrarian Party. Another six candidates have been nominated by initiative groups of citizens.

All candidates were given equal opportunity to organize meetings with voters, appearances on TV, radio and in printed media. Necessary conditions have been created for national and international observers, which indicates the openness and transparency of the electoral process.

While monitoring the elections, the CIS observers have held a series of meetings, including meetings with the leadership of the Central Election Commission, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Democratic Party of Turkmenistan, the trustees of a number of candidates, and got acquainted with the activity of precinct election commissions in velayats and Ashgabat. On election day, they are planning to visit polling stations to observe the voting process and the counting of votes.

In general, the election campaign goes on in a quiet atmosphere, in the spirit of open competition, in the correct form and at a high organizational level, Lebedev stated, noting that the final conclusions and evaluation by the mission of CIS observers will be presented in the final document on the monitoring of elections.
