Mr. Toktorbek Aidyraliev was elected as the new President of the Kyrgyz NPC.

Rashed also met with the Mayor of Kant Town H.E. Mr. Maylybashev Ulan Bekbolotovich, and thanked him for his continuous support for the Paralympic Movement in the country. Bekbolotovich’s support will also see a new Paralympic Centre in the Kant Town to be built in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent.

The APC delegation also have had the chance to meet and interact with Kyrgyz Para-Athletes in their training centre in Kant town.

“First, I would like to thank the Government of Kyrgyzstan, Ministry of Sports and the Parliament for supporting the Paralympic Movement in the country. Their elections were successful as all federations and members of the General Assembly took part in it,” said the APC President.

“I think it’s a good start for the new Board to understand the next mission and challenges on developing the Parasport Movement in Kyrgyzstan. The transparency and democracy of the election show that Board should work very hard to provide this atmosphere to the players and members.”

Rashed also shared APC’s plans to work closely with the new Board of Kyrgyz NPC.

“We plan to work closely with the NPC of Kyrgyzstan in order to develop some programmes and initiatives for the Kyrgyz para-athletes. The positive sign is that the government of Kyrgyzstan is fully supportive towards the Movement, and the Private sector are expected to be involved soon.

“My advice to the new board is to get everyone within the Movement including government, private sectors, media, volunteers among others. And when these sectors are around the athletes, the best result can be achieved,” he added.
