The leaders of three opposition factions Omurbek Tekebayev, Omurbek Babanov and Bakyt Torobaev threaten to dismiss the Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov. They said it today at a meeting of Parliament.

The conflict started with a loud dispute between the Socialists' leader and the Prime Minister. As a result, Omurbek Tekebayev said that Sooronbay Jeenbekov would resign if he does not learn to respect the deputies.

Leader of Respublika - Ata Jurt Omurbek Babanov also threatened to dismiss the Prime Minister. In conclusion of his speech on the results of Kyrgyzstan's accession to EEU, he added: "We will decide the fate of the government at the faction meeting tomorrow."

The head of Onuguu-Progress Bakyt Torobaev also voiced a proposal for Sooronbay Jeenbekov to voluntarily resign.
