SIMFEROPOL (QHA) -

Some of Kurultay (Crimean Tatar national assembly) delegates believe that Mejlis’s decision to boycott Parliament elections in Crimea was “hasty”.

Mejlis member, vice speaker of Crimean Parliament Remzi Ilyasov announced this on June 13, during the meeting of Kurultay delegates with public. The meeting gathered about 40 people, who came to discuss the issue.

Kurultay delegates said that decision to boycott the elections was hasty and Mejlis had to arrange consultations with Kurultay and Crimean Tatar society, and analyze the recent events, stressing that this was “crucial moment”.

The delegates also accused Mejlis of not implementation of Kurultay’s decision to affiliate Crimean Tatars with Crimean government. They also accused Mejlis of not implementation of Crimean Parliament’s decree “on guarantees on restoration of Crimean Tatar rights”, adopted on March 11.

To recall, Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people announced it would boycott Parliament elections in Crimea scheduled for September 14.
