Vice Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Aida Kasymalieva said that it is necessary to nominate a new candidate for the post of Prime Minister of the country. The parliamentarian wrote about this on her Facebook page.
According to her, the deputies on October 6 appointed a new chairman of the government, Sadyr Japarov, “because they were driven by the desire to ensure the stability of the state, peace and order in the country.”
“We believed that Sadyr Japarov would become the person who would unite different political forces inside and outside parliament, become a bridge between the government and the opposition, be able to help overcome differences and provide conditions for the smooth holding of new parliamentary elections,” Kasymalieva said.
However, according to her, the situation has now developed in such a way that “a significant part of society will simply refuse to accept it, and instead of uniting the entire country, on the contrary, we will only intensify the split and disagreements.”
“Instead of a government of popular confidence, we will get an irritant, and even more than that, instead of creating conditions for social harmony, his appointment as prime minister will in itself cause further upheavals in society. We cannot, we have no right to take such a risk, ”Kasymalieva stressed.
Protests in Kyrgyzstan began after the October 4 parliamentary elections. 16 parties took part in them, only four of them have overcome the electoral barrier.

They seized the buildings of the city hall, public television and radio company, parliament, government and the country’s Interior Ministry.
President of the country Sooronbai Jeenbekov called the incident in the state an attempt to seize power.
