New Political Party Emerges In Kyrgyzstan

BISHKEK -- A new political party, the Patriots of Kyrgyzstan, is set up to hold its founding congress on February 16, during which it will establish its internal structure, working bodies, and program.

The leader of the party, Almaz Orozbakov, told RFE/RL's Kyrgyz service that the party positions itself as a constructive opposition group.

Orozbakov added that the party considers the current Kyrgyz Parliament illegitimate, and will therefore do its best to seek the parliament's dissolution via legal means.
