In Autumn, 1990 139 deputies of the Supreme Soviet of Tuva were elected on the alternative base. For the first time in the Tuvan history voters had more than a candidate on the election bulletin to chose from.

That democratically elected Soviet had done a lot for promoting democracy in Tuva - declared sovereignity of the people of Tuva, annuled the leading role of the communist party in Tuva, adopted a new Constitution in 1993. The first wave of Tuvan democrates has chosen further on different roads in life - that is why the anniversary was celebrated in 2 different places: in the Centre of the Folk Culture those who supported the present governement of Tuva gathered; in the Supreme Khural 49 deputies of that legendary democratic Soviet got together. As the vice-speaker of the Khural Vitali Valkov said, 15 years ago the first and... the last honest democratic elections took place in Tuva.
