Kyrgyz president says to spare no efforts in keeping ruling coalition alive
Kyrgyz President Roza Otunbayeva Tuesday said she would make the greatest efforts to maintain the ruling coalition, which was being bogged down in inner rifts and rows, Xinhua reported.
The coalition consists of the Ata-Zhurt party, the Social Democratic party and the Respublika party.
Otunbayeva admitted the coalition had been on the verge of collapse, saying the three parties held different views on a series of issues.
She also said there weren't enough contacts and exchanges between the three parties.
Kamchibek Tashiev, leader of the Ata-Zhurt party, had threatened to drop out of the coalition to show dissatisfaction with the government and the coalition's two other parties.
The ruling coalition was formed after the parliamentary elections in October.
