Kyrgyzstan President Sooronbay Jeenbekov has rejected the newly appointed Prime Minister.

He has also demanded the parliament to vote again after Sadyr Japarov was appointed as PM by MPs.

Mr. Jeenbekov shared that there were doubts over if lawmakers had followers voting rules.

Kyrgyzstan’s parliament had named Mr. Japarov as the country’s new prime minister on Saturday after his predecessor resigned.

President Keenbekov said that he would disapprove of the appointment. He said in a statement, “To maintain and strengthen stability in the country, all our decisions must be legitimate and not be questioned.”

His statement comes after a senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the ex-Soviet state on Monday, meeting both President Jeenbekov and Mr. Japarov.

It should be remembered that Kyrgyzstan’s Prime Minister Kubatbek Boronov had resigned after fierce post-election protests that aroused amid elections.

According to BBC, Kubatbek Boronov has now been replaced by Sadyr Japarov, who protesters released from jail the day before.

“The main goal of the protesters was not to annul the election results but to remove me from power,” President Jeenbekov had earlier told BBC Kyrgyz in an exclusive phone interview from a secret hideaway.

He urged parties to return to the “legitimate field” and work together to avoid the political upheavals of the past.
“To solve this issue, I am ready to give the responsibility to strong leaders, no matter which group they belong to. I am even ready to help them,” he added.
