Kyrgyzstan's political turmoil sinks as country plunges into power vacuum

But on Friday, Jeanbekov fired Prime Minister Kubetek Boronov and his cabinet, saying he was ready to resign once a new leadership was appointed.

The legislators split into groups – one met at a hotel and the other at a movie theater – to decide who would be allowed to run for prime minister. But separately, they have struggled to get enough votes for a quorum. The outgoing parliament has not even called.

But then the capital, Bishkek, was rocked by rival protests on Friday afternoon and instructed Jinbekov to impose a state of emergency in the city until Oct. 21. His office announced that members of the military would be deployed in Bishkek to “organize checkpoints, prevent armed clashes, ensure law and order and protect civilians.” “

At a rally, a car carrying former President Almazbek Atambayev, who was released from a detention center by protesters earlier this week, was shot dead, according to a video posted on social media. His party did worse than expected from opinion polls, which saw them at gaining about a third of the support.

Meanwhile, no new date has been set for the now-announced parliamentary elections.

The Kremlin said the director of Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB, had a phone conversation with Kyrgyz Security Council Secretary Omurbek Suvanaliyev on Thursday.
