In Kyrgyzstan, parliamentary coalition, consisting of three factions, supported by 10 deputies of the opposition have expressed a desire to join the ruling majority. According to the agency, a decision by representatives of the coalition factions have taken at the meeting of April 20.

As previously reported, the majority decided to join the 10 deputies from the opposition party Ar-Namys (Dignity). They stated that in this way trying to protect against a possible collapse of the coalition.

Statement of opposition was made against a background of conflict between one of the coalition parties – Ata-Jurt (Fatherland) and two other partners (the Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan and the Republic). Ata-Jurt some time ago, threatened to leave the alliance, however, these threats have not been implemented.

In the group of deputies Ar-Namys, expressing a desire to join the coalition, was not the leader of this party – the former prime minister of Kyrgyzstan Felix Kulov. Commenting on the publication, he said he did not consider this group as traitors (MPs from these ten, for his part, said they would enter into a coalition with his leader). At the same time Kulov noted that the occurrence of individual members of the ruling coalition legally impossible.

Earlier, on the initiative of the opposition have reacted skeptically, and other deputies. They pointed to the constitutional provision (Article 70 of the Constitution of Kyrgyzstan), on which the parliamentary majority is the fraction or fractions of a coalition, officially announced the creation of a coalition of factions in parliament, with more than half of the seats. On joining the coalition of individual members is the question.

How does the ruling majority is now planning to issue its relations with members of the Ar-Namys, is unknown. A possible way out would be to join the alliance of all factions. The press has previously featured an unofficial version of reformatting the coalition, according to which supported the initiative of Felix Kulov and his supporters have reportedly offered the post of deputy prime minister.

The current coalition was formed after the parliamentary elections held in autumn 2010. As a result of these elections in the country were established legitimate authority (instead of interim government has acted after the April coup.)
