TASHKENT, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Uzbekistan's Central Election Commission (CEC) has registered five candidates nominated by the country's five political parties for the upcoming presidential elections to be held on Oct. 24, the CEC said Tuesday.

The pre-election campaign for the presidential elections will start on Sept. 20, the CEC said in a statement.

Uzbekistan's incumbent President Shavkat Mirziyoyev was nominated earlier this month by the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.

Other presidential candidates include Bakhrom Abdukhalimov from the Adolat (Justice) Social Democratic Party, Alisher Kadirov from Milliy Tiklanish (National Revival) and Narzullo Oblomuradov from the Ecological Parties.

The only female candidate, Maksuda Varisova, is from the People's Democratic Party.

According to Uzbek election laws, the president is elected for a five-year term and can serve no more than two consecutive terms. Candidates are nominated only by registered political parties and should be at least 35 years old, fluent in the state language, permanently residing in the territory of Uzbekistan for at least ten years.
