Kyrgyz government could resign
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 24
By Elena Kosolapova - Trend:
Kyrgyzstan’s presidential Social Democratic Party decided to leave the coalition of the parliamentary majority, the party announced on Oct. 24.
Withdrawal of the Social Democratic Party will result in the coalition disintegration, which could lead to the resignation of the government.
The coalition of the parliamentary majority consist of four factions: the Social Democratic Party (38 members), Kyrgyzstan party (18 members), Onuguu - Progress party (13 members) and Ata Meken party (11 members).
“We cannot be in one coalition with people who have common interests with Akayev and Bakiyev, and who still follow their instructions, who act against national interests. All this became clear during the constitutional reform.
Askar Akayev and Kurmanbek Bakiyev are former Kyrgyz presidents. Both of them are in exile now. Akayev lives and works in Russia. Bakiyev got a political asylum in Belarus.
“Previously, we tried to believe in our partner’s innocence of looting. But now we face more and more facts and evidences testifying the most hard-hitting accusations against them and decide to refrain from a coalition with them until all new circumstances and facts are cleared up,” the party said.
According to the law, one of the fractions should form a parliamentary coalition in the near future. If it fails, the country’s president will give the right to form a coalition of other party.
