For the first time, elections to the seventh convocation of the Kyrgyz parliament are held according to a mixed system. For 54 mandates, candidates are fighting on party lists, for another 36 seats in parliament – candidates in single-mandate constituencies. The results of the previous ones, which took place in October 2020, were canceled by the CEC amid the riots in the republic, which led to the resignation of President Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
