President: Kyrgyz elections- last attempt of Kurmanbek Bakiyev’s supporters to regain power
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 4 / Trend /
The presidential elections held in Kyrgyzstan was the last attempt of former President Kurmanbek Bakiyev's supporters' to return to power, Kyrgyz President Roza Otunbayeva believes, KirTAG reported on Friday.
"Do you not think that this was the last attempt of Bakiyev's supporters to regain power? These are convulsions, onslaught and the last steps to hold on. The financial flows come from just them. I believe that some candidates were engaged in blaming me during the entire month. Let the people view these comments," Mrs. Otunbayeva said in an interview with 'Business Week'
Mrs. Otunbayeva recognises that dividing the country into north and south continues. However, this is a natural process, as for example, in Britain where there is a separation between England and Scotland. The problem is that this is 'confrontational and exploited for political purposes'.
With cautious optimism, Mrs. Otunbayeva answered the question about the forecasts of some analysts that the new president wants to consolidate power.
"No one in the world wants to live under authoritarianism. Sooner or later everything explodes. You cannot buy this with benefits. The GDP was 13,000 per capita in Libya, but it did not help. However, we are in a geographical location where the presidential form of government reigns in all neighbouring countries. And when this is combined with good economic performance our nation asks us, may we go back to the presidential form of government? "Mrs. Otunbayeva said.
She regrets that the parliamentary authority still looks 'unsettled' and 'not a single day passes without a rally'.
"But the young republic had no time to learn. Western countries took centuries to reach today's development," she stressed.
