BISHKEK, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — Deputy Prime Minister Aaly Karashev has been appointed Kyrgyzstan’s Acting Prime Minister after Omurbek Babayev resigned.
Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev signed the relevant decree on Saturday, the presidential press service told Itar-Tass.
Karashev was born in Kyrgyzstan’s Osh region in October 1968.
He is fluent in four languages, including Russian and English. He is an author of different research works on the development of local self-government.
He is married with two children.
Most local experts forecast that Karashev will not head the government for a long time. Earlier in the day three of the five parliamentary parties announced they will form a new coalition with the ruling majority. These are the Social Democratic Party, Ar-Namys (Dignity) and Ata-Meken (Fatherland). In the near future they will name candidates for the positions of the prime minister and ministers.
Kyrgyz political scientists name the head of the presidential administration, Zhantoro Satybaldiyev, as the most probable candidate for premiership.
