President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov has said on Friday that he will resign over political chaos stemming from a disputed parliamentary election.
According to the details, the President in his statement said “The political situation in the country has reached the critical point.” In addition to this, he also proposed to annul recent election results and called for a new vote to stabilize the country.
Protests in Kyrgyzstan erupted earlier this week, and demonstrators overran the parliament building and released a former president from jail.
One person was killed and 590 wounded in the clashes that night between protesters and security forces, the government said.
Sooronbai Jeenbekov said law enforcement should ensure that lawmakers, whose building is not under state control, are able to hold a session.
Sooronbai Jeenbekov added that he wanted to “legitimize appointments” after several politicians claimed leadership positions in the country.
