"I am quite happy with an old chair," the leader of the Social Democratic Party Chynybay Tursunbekov said to 24.kg news agency, commenting on the purchase of new armchairs for newly elected deputies for more than 2 million soms.
According to him, he did not even know about the tender for the purchase of furniture. "I learned it from the media. But there is not such a question for me. I am quite happy with my old chair," Chynybay Tursunbekov assured.
His fellow party member Dastan Bekeshev stressed that he is satisfied with the old armchair and do not need new. "This is initiative of a manager. As far as I know, repairs in the parliament building are begun and the furniture is replaced with coming of the newly elected parliament. It is common practice," he said.
