Tajik President Expected To Win Fourth Term

Opposition candidates weren't keen to criticize government policy


Polls have closed in Tajikistan's presidential election amid reports of irregularities at some polling stations. 

The Central Election Commission, (CEC) said voter turnout in the election on November 6 was well above 80 percent.

The CEC had earlier declared the election valid after the turnout figures passed the 50 percent threshold required to make the polls legitimate.
