Crimean Tatars held a Kurultai for the first time in 4 years

Крымские татары провели Курултай впервые за 4 года

For the first time in four years, the delegates of Kurultay gathered to decide, as the Supreme legislative body of the Crimean Tatars will work in the conditions of annexation.

In Kiev, Crimean Tatars on Monday, November 12, held a Congress of representatives of Crimean Tatar people (Kurultay) for the first time in the last four years. About 100 delegates gathered in the capital of Ukraine, to solve, as the Supreme legislative body of the Crimean Tatars will work in the conditions of the annexation of the Peninsula, according to Segodnya.

Stated that the last time the Supreme representative body of the Crimean Tatar people have gathered in Crimea. At the Congress in Kiev, the organizers of the meeting asked not to show the faces of the delegates from the annexed Crimea to returning home, they were not endangered.

Reportedly, the Kurultai gathered in the conference format that does not require quorum: in Kiev took the risk to come less than a hundred delegates. One of the pressing issues – the cadence chosen.

The MP and Commissioner of the President on the issues of the Crimean Tatar people Mustafa Dzhemilev assures the rights of delegates determined.

“The delegates of Kurultay resign only after election of new members of the Kurultai and on the first session of the new Kurultai. And since to hold democratic elections and to convene a new Kurultai we have no opportunities, we can assume that the credentials of delegates of the Kurultay of the current is automatically prolonged,” he said.

It is expected that the hotels will decide what to do with 18 colleagues-collaborators, who cooperate with the so-called “power” of the annexed Crimea. Offer two scenarios – either to expel from the ranks, or ignored because of the minority. But the main goal of the conference is to change the rules so that the Kurultai was able to work during the annexation.

“Delegates make statements solely on himself, at the same time, they propose to develop the procedures and mechanisms that would and it and the subsequent decisions more legitimacy. Call upon the Majlis to amend the regulations of the Kurultay and offer them to all the current delegates of the Kurultai to support their personal signatures,” – said the head of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, Deputy Refat Chubarov.

It is noted that the Crimean Tatars are considering the possibility of making decisions by the Kurultai by personal signature or Internet voting deputies.

On Monday, President Petro Poroshenko handed over to the delegates of Kurultay of the letter, which said that changes to the Constitution regarding the status of Crimea will consider in the near future. The President’s address was read by Refat Chubarov.
