Mirlan Zheenchoroev became the leader of Respublika party. This decision was made today at an extraordinary congress of the political association.
Its former leader Omurbek Babanov voluntarily resigned. He, recall, is a defendant in several criminal cases.
The party will participate in the parliamentary elections in 2020 without Ata-Jurt.
Respublika — Ata-Jurt tandem was formed by mutual agreement between Omurbek Babanov and Kamchybek Tashiev in 2015 before the elections to the Parliament. The leaders of the two parties noted that the union became not an association of politicians, but of political forces.
