- Written by TCA
DUSHANBE (TCA) — A group of members of the lower chamber of Tajikistan’s parliament have proposed an amendment to the country’s Constitution that would lower to 30 years the minimal age at which Tajik citizens are eligible to run for presidency in Tajikistan. Today persons not younger than 35 years old have the right to run for President in Tajikistan. The amendment was apparently proposed in favor of President Emomali Rakhmon’s son, Rustam Emomali, who will turn 33 by the next presidential election in Tajikistan in 2020, the Fergana information agency reported.
