Newly appointed vice-mayor of Simferopol Teyfuk Gafarov intends to remain member of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people. He leaves his post of head of Legal Department of Mejlis and will focus on work in city administration.
“I intend to remain Mejlis member. All the executive and legislative bodies say they are not going to ban this representative body [the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people,-ed.]. I am not going to oppose my activities, on the contrary, I will work on solving the issues”- Gafarov said, adding that he would deal with issues of deportees and issues of trade in Simferopol.
Gafarov said he was confident he would continue working on this post after the upcoming parliament elections, noting that opinions in Mejlis regarding appointment divided.
“Mejlis is democratic body, so there are different points of view - he said. Important issues are to be settled by Kurultay, and the Mejlis should obey Kurultay’s decisions and at the last session [of Kurultay] it was decided to delegate Crimean Tatars to Crimean power”- Gafarov emphasized.
“There are a lot of issues to be settled. In my opinion, we should work”- he added.
