For this episode I spoke with Erica Marat about the parliamentary elections coming up October 4 in Kyrgyzstan. The elections are the first since 2010, and feature a bewildering jumble of familiar faces from Kyrgyzstan's poltiical scene. All the major players have formed (sometimes contradictory) new alliances in in their efforts to overcome the increasingly dominant Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan (SDPK) that President Almazbek Atambaev no longer leads but still clearly favors. The SDPK, meanwhile, is seeking to strengthen its position in parliament, perhaps with the use of administrative resources and a controversial law on the use of biometric information to register voters. All this and more on the podcast.
