BISHKEK, February 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Kyrgyzstan’s President Almazbek Atambayev has promised to preserve the parliamentary form of government.
“During my years in office I will do everything to ensure the parliamentary form of government should firmly establish itself in our country, Atambayev said at a meeting with a delegation from the European Parliament under the co-chair of its committee for parliamentary cooperation European Union-Kyrgyzstan, Paolo Bartolocci. “History has shown that it is wrong to vest one person with the right to run the country and make decisions at one’s sole discretion.”
He said that Kyrgyzstan was prepared to follow a path of development that would be different from dictatorship and manifestations of radical extremism.
About the future of democracy in the republic Atambayev said that the European principles of legality and the observance of human rights were very close to Kyrgyzstan.
He called upon the European Union to put relations onto a practical footing and to make a transition from declared intentions to specific action.
The parliamentary form of government was introduced in Kyrgyzstan last autumn several months after ousted president Kurmanbek Bakiyev had to flee the country. Kyrgyzstan’s first president, Askar Akayev, too, had had to leave the country after a revolution. The parliamentary elections in the autumn of 2010 formed a five-party parliament. Four parties united into a ruling coalition and created a cabinet of ministers.
