Leader of Respublika-Ata Jurt replaced

The parliamentary faction Respublika-Ata Jurt gathered yesterday evening for an extraordinary closed meeting. Own sources in the Parliament informed 24.kg news agency.

According to them, only one question is on the agenda — the change of the leader. Recall, Ruslan Kazakbaev, who was elected in December 2017 by a majority vote, is an incumbent leader of the faction.

According to the sources, two candidates — Kurmankul Zulushev and Zhyrgalbek Turuskulov- claim for the post of the faction head.

Ruslan Kazakbaev himself does not plan to leave the leader’s post. The faction can not get a quorum for voting.

Ruslan Kazakbaev replaced Omurbek Babanov as leader of the faction after the latter fled the country.
