Kyrgyz President Sooronbai Jeenbekov said that he did not introduce a state of emergency in the country so as not to provoke a new conflict. This was announced on October 7 by his press service.

According to the Kyrgyz leader, he did not use force against the attackers on the White House, so as not to risk the lives of people.

“There were also tough demands to“ calm down the protesters by force ”. I denied this. Because it will lead to conflict. Therefore, I did not sign the decree on the introduction of a state of emergency, “RIA Novosti quotes him.

Jeenbekov stressed that it is dangerous to split into factions. He noted that “those who want to come to power have achieved their goal,” and called on demonstrators and political leaders “to return to the legal field”.

The main task, the head of state added, remained to ensure peace and order in Kyrgyzstan. Jeenbekov called on the parties to be patient and restrained. The president called what happened earlier in the country an attempt to seize power.

Parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan were held on October 4. The next day, representatives of political parties who disagreed with the voting results, who could not get the minimum number of votes, took their supporters to the streets.

They seized the buildings of the Bishkek city hall, public television and radio company, parliament, government and the country’s Interior Ministry. The protesters released former president of the republic Almazbek Atambayev and ex-premier Sapar Isakov, as well as a number of deputies from prison.

The CEC later declared the voting results invalid. The leaders of the opposition parties created two coordination councils.

According to the Republican Ministry of Health, 768 people were injured during the riots in Bishkek.
