Bishkek, July 15 / Kabar /. Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Chynybai Tursunbekov intends to nominate his candidacy for the post of head of state. He stated this today at the 16th Congress of the SDPK political party.
He said that today is an unusual day and congratulated his party members on this day. "Seven years ago, I closely linked my life with the SDPK party. Together we fully supported the policy of President Almazbek Atambayev and supported the course of the head of state. To date, our party is a party with a strong foundation," Tursunbekov said.
However, the speaker said that over the past 2 months, there has been much intrigue, and it is connected with him. "I said that probably I will run for the post of head of state, but this was interpreted in different ways. They even said that there was a split in the party. I want to note that there is no split. We work together and will continue to work together. There are supporters of Sioronbai Zheenbekov, and there are supporters of Tursunbekov - this is normal. So the population has the opportunity to choose a common leader. This is a unique moment when there will be two candidates coming from one party," the speaker said.
