CEC to decide on transfer of Omurbek Tekebayev’s deputy seat

The Central Election Commission at its next meeting will decide the issue of transfer of deputy seat of Omurbek Tekebayev. The Deputy Chairman of the commission Abdyzhapar Bekmatov informed 24.kg news agency.

According to him, a candidate from the Socialist Party will come to Parliament. Earlier, the CEC suspended the transfer of the seat, as Tekebayev’s lawyers filed a supervisory complaint to the Supreme Court against the verdict of Bishkek City Court. The day before, the Supreme Court of the Kyrgyz Republic upheld the verdict of the first two instances against Tekebayev, who is accused of corruption.

It is expected that ex-head of the Accounting Chamber Iskender Gaypkulov will come to the Parliament. As Abdyzhapar Bekmatov explained, he will be handed a deputy badge in a few days.
