More than 20 million people in Uzbekistan are eligible to vote in a presidential election, in which incumbent President Shavkat Mirziyoev is widely expected to win a second term of office given the absence of opposition candidates. The vote on October 24 is Uzbekistan's sixth presidential election since the country of some 35 million people gained its independence from the former Soviet Union in 1991.
