Omurbek Tekebayev's supporters repeatedly gather at CEC building in Bishkek

Supporters of the deputy of the Parliament Omurbek Tekebayev gather near the CEC building. They demand to allow him to pass the state language exam. Members of the CEC were to meet for an extraordinary session at 9.00 am. However, there is no quorum.

The day before, neither the court, nor the SCNS, nor the Central Election Commission had been able to decide how the kept under arrest Omurbek Tekebayev should take the state language test.

At the same time, it was stated that if he does not show up for the exam today, his absence will be equated with the failure of the test task. And this entails a refusal to register him as a candidate for the presidency.

Omurbek Tekebayev and ex-head of the Ministry of Emergency Situations Duishenkul Chotonov are accused of corruption.
