BISHKEK, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — Almazbek Atambayev will be inaugurated as President of Kyrgyzstan on December 1. Interim President Roza Otunbayeva signed a decree on that on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Almazbek Atambayev won the presidential election on October 30. A total of 16 people ran for the country’s top post. Atambayev won a landslide victory even in the first round. He collected slightly over 62 percent of the votes.
His main rivals – leader of United Kyrgyzstan Party Adakhan Madumarov and head of the Ata-Zhurt (Homeland) Party Kamchybek Tashiev gained 14.77 and 14.32 percent, respectively.
A total of 1.85 million out of nearly three million registered voters (61.28 percent) went to the polls.
Otunbayeva has issued instructions to set up an organizing committee to prepare the inauguration ceremony, determine the strength of the delegations that will take part in it and ensure the invitation of foreign delegations. She also gave instructions to the government to allocate necessary means.
The ceremony of a peaceful transfer of power will be held for the first time in the history of independent Kyrgyzstan. Two previous presidents, Askar Akayev and Kurmanbek Bakiyev, were ousted from their posts as a result of revolutions and both had to flee their country together with their relatives.
