The Constitutional Court To Discuss an Appeal by the Opposition Deputies

BISHKEK. Tomorrow, the Kyrgyz Constitutional Court will consider an appeal by a group of deputies of the Legislative Assembly (lower chamber) of Parliament over the Kyrgyz-Chinese border agreements. A lawmaker, and the leader of the ‘Asaba’ (Flag) National Revival Party, Azimbek Beknazarov told RFE/RL today that three deputies (Ismail Isakov, Ishenbai Kadyrbekov and Beknazarov) will represent the group on Monday’s hearing at the court. The group appealed to the Constitutional court in May last year, asking it to overturn the parliament’s ratification of the agreements as an act against the Constitution and international procedures. The official Bishkek has been repeating that the agreements were signed and ratified in accordance with the laws of the country and that they were a big diplomatic achievement of the Kyrgyz state which regained its independency in 1991.
