Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Asilbek Jeenbekov has announced his resignation as his brother, Sooronbai Jeenbekov is nominated as prime minister. Asilbek Jeenbekov thanked his colleagues and President Almazbek Atanbayev for his trust. The speaker made the announcement on April 13 in the beginning of the plenary session.

On April 11, Kyrgyz Prime Minister Temir Saryiev announced his resignation. The move was caused by a scoop around a tender procedure for reconstruction of the Balykchy-Korumdu road won by LongHai Chinese corporation. A parliamentary commission investigated the case and ruled that the prime minister committed numerous violations in the process.

Temir Sariyev was the fourth prime minister in the presidency of Almazbek Atambayev since 2011 serving for a year only.

Analysts say that Saryiev’s resignation marks start of processes to alienate the Kyrgyz Republic from the Eurasian Economic Union, and the outgoing prime minister comprehends it.
