Deputy speaker of Crimean Parliament Remzi Ilyasov announced he will participate in parliamentary elections scheduled for September 14, calling on Crimean Tatars to participate in the elections as well.
“I stand for all Crimean Tatars to take part in the parliamentary elections. We should be active, nominee the candidates and then arrange a dialogue on the issue of Crimean Tatar representation in Crimean Parliament, this is my position”- Ilyasov said.
“I believe that the boycott will lead to more confrontation, bad confrontation that may be considered as confrontation on ethnic basis” - he noted.
To recall, Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people announced it would boycott parliamentary elections in Crimea scheduled for September 14.
“Voting system that will be used in the elections will not allow 20 % of Crimean Tatar representatives in the Parliament, moreover the elections will decrease number of Crimean Tatar MPs that are now in the government”- head of Mejlis Refat Chubarov noted.
Meanwhile, the issue will be discussed at the Mejlis session, that to be held in Kherson region (mainland Ukraine) on July 4.
Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev is supposed to attend the session.
The decision to conduct Mejlis session out of Crimean peninsula comes after the authorities banned Jemilev from entering Crimea for 5 years over “extremist activity”.
