Ukraine should revise the role of Crimean deputies in Ukrainian Parliament, in particular, Crimean Tatars, as well as the role of Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev in Ukraine’s politics.
Deputy head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Nariman Dzhelal announced this in an interview with QHA correspondent.
“I am sure that Ukrainian Parliament as well as Ukraine itself needs Mustafa Jemilev, as we understand that the settling of Crimean Tatar issue may have a place in Parliament’s work and the activity of Ukrainian leadership”- he said.
“Ukrainian President has made right steps in this direction [regarding Crimean Tatar issues,-ed.] Now the Parliament should put emphasis on Crimean Tatar issues. These are Mustafa Jemilev and Refat Chubarov who know the situation in Crimea and will assure that all the decisions made by the Parliament will serve the interests of Crimean Tatars”- Dzhelal summed up
Ukrainians have voted in parliamentary elections Oct 26, elections that President Petro Poroshenko had called "historic".
Pro-European parties, in particular the parties of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk and Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy have won seats in the Parliament.
Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jemilev, number 5 in the list of the Petro Poroshenko’s Bloc is expected to become a member of Ukrainian Parliament. Meanwhile the head of Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people Refat Chubarov, number 71 in the list failed to enter Ukrainian Parliament. .
