And about. President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov signed a decree on ex-President Sooronbai Jeenbekov, who voluntarily resigned, according to the press service of the country’s government on Friday, October 16.
It is noted that the law “On guarantees of the activities of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic and the status of the ex-president” retains all the norms provided for by law for Jeenbekov.
Earlier on Friday, members of the Kyrgyz parliament accompanied Jeenbekov with applause.
On the same day, it was reported that early presidential elections in Kyrgyzstan would be held before January 10.
Jeenbekov announced his resignation on October 15. Under the Constitution, the powers of the head of state are transferred to the speaker of parliament, but a day later, speaker Kanat Isaev refused to act as president, and all powers passed to the head of the cabinet, Japarov.
After the parliamentary elections on October 4, protests began in the country. Supporters of the parties that did not get into parliament took to the streets of Bishkek, seized the buildings of the city administration, public television and radio company, parliament, government and the country’s Interior Ministry, and also released some politicians from prison.
Jeenbekov called the incident in the state an attempt to seize power, but agreed with the need to hold new elections. The republic’s CEC canceled the results of the voting, and the leaders of the opposition parties created the first and second coordination councils.
