BISHKEK – Kyrgyz President Sooronbai Jeenbekov said late Thursday he was ready to resign after the appointment of new heads of executive bodies and the country’s return to the legal order.
“We need to return the situation to the legal order as soon as possible. After the appointment of legitimate heads of the executive bodies and the country’s return to the legal order, I am ready to leave the post of the president of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan,” Jeenbekov said, as quoted by his press service.
Parliamentary elections were held in Kyrgyzstan on Sunday with the participation of 16 political parties. Preliminary results showed that four parties crossed the 7 percent threshold to enter the parliament.
Some parties which failed to meet the threshold organized nationwide protests on Monday, demanding the annulment of the elections and claiming gross violations.
