CPT leader Miroj Abdulloyev, who is member of Tajikistan’s lower chamber (Majlisi Namoyandagon) of parliament, says about 100 delegates from all regions of the country are expected to participate in the upcoming congress.


“They will discuss the party’s election program and the issue of nomination of the party candidate for president,” Abdulloyev said.


The CPT lost its two seats in parliament as it failed to pass a 5-percent threshold to get into Majlisi Namoyandagon (Tajikistan’s lower house of parliament) in March 2015.


However, it managed to win two seats in the Majlisi Namoyandagon in this year’s parliamentary elections that were held in March.


Founded in 1918, the Communist Party of Tajikistan was registered in 1991. According to some sources, the party now has about 37,000 members.


Recall, Tajikistan’s parliament has set October 11 as the date for the country’s next presidential election. The resolution on the election date was approved on August 6 during a joint session of both chamber of parliament.
