Media and social network users actively discuss the details of yesterday’s joint meeting of both chambers of the Uzbek parliament attended by President Islam Karimov.
Deputies and senators gathered together to hear the keynote speech of the Prime Minister Shaukat Mirzieev, who was nominated for the post by parliamentary majority party UzLiDeP for another term.
The official media have not yet released a report Sh.Mirzieev.
The big surprise was the fact that of the 150 deputies of the Legislative Chamber and 100 members of the Senate, only one voted “against” the president supported the candidacy of prime minister. However this one vote “nay” blasted a number of comments in social media:
“May be someone young and inexperienced simply confused the voting buttons?”
“For the first time in 23 years, someone probably wanted to test if the button works?”
“The one who voted nay is circled!” Picture of Nazi Germany period is used as a joke to show that there always been someone who thinks different! Now that is true for Uzbek parliament!
