Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan (SDPK) elected Almazbek Atambaev as its leader.
The Social Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan (SDPK) elected former president Almazbek Atambaev as its leader, Eugenia Berdnikova reports.
As Berdnikova reports, the agenda included two issues: report on the party’s activity and election of a party leader.
191 delegates were invited and 179 people were registered. Salaydin Avazov, Farid Niyazov, Kushbak Tezekbaev, Muzaffar Isakov, Osmonbek Artykbaev, Dastan Bekeshev, Isa Omurkulov, Azamat Arapbaev, Albek Ibraimov, and Ikramjan Ilmiyanov were among delegates. At a press conference following the party convention, Almazbek Atambaev said that a president must be protected from attacks.
As Atambaev told, Sooronbay Jeenbekov only speaks beautiful words about fighting corruption.
“They suggested him such beautiful words. The Security Council should be the center of common sense; they should not test whether you are in shape or not. Jeenbekov is at the start of the way; we should support him. Everyone must be responsible for his sector. I have to show documents when they deceive him and he reads such words,” said Atambaev.
“I hired Temir Jumakadyrov when he had no experience. When I opened a restaurant in early 1990s, I hired those who had no experience in this field. The Security Council was functioning. Now, it must function in the same was. You should not suggest him such words. I believe in the president. If we protect him from provocations, he will be able to work honorably. I do not want to name names. If he or someone else asks for advice, I will tell what to do. There is a knowledge not written in books. My task is to tell him what might lead to disaster”, he added.
The system of public administration and a corruption system became intimated in Kyrgyzstan. The authorities use it only for its own benefit. Disagreements between Atambaev and Jeenbekov are formed because of private interests. It reminds the strain between Atambaev and Tekebaev in late 2014, as well as the previous situation with the Interim government in 2010.
Sharp tension between Atambaev and Jeenbekov is resulted from the failure of the system which is used only for private interests such as the tension between Atambaev and Interim government as noted above. This tension will be accompanied by a fight for positions in power, then it will be followed by exposure of each other’s corruption schemes. Currently, Atambaev is outside the administration as a political player. This administration system is comparable to a mafia system. The only difference is that instead of controlling gangsters, a “boss” has an influence on government members, ministry of internal affairs, prosecutor’s office, and national security service. The acting president actually does not control the above public sectors. On the other hand, the president started to reform these sectors since the beginning of the year, and it came as a severe blow to Atambaev’s criminal syndicate.
Following events: Atambaev will start cleaning the SDPK party. Jeenbekov will establish new party and make those expelled from the SDPK his key figures in the party. The Kyrgyz ruling elite will be divided into two groups; more powerful and influential persons will pass to Jeenbekov’s side. Reforms in each sector will continue; personnel changes are expected. Splits in security ministries will occur. Many people will be subject to criminal prosecutions.
It is also expected that: during this fight, some compromising documents from Atambaev’s team might come to light. Attempts to use the southern and northern factors of the country will take place. Both parties will intensify the fight via mass media in order to draw more public attention. Atambaev will represent “transition to parliamentarian system” as a central factor of his fight, according to latest changes in the constitution of Kyrgyzstan. As a result, a prime minister should head the country.
Dear brothers and sisters! We remind you that this fight bears no relationship to Islam and Muslims! As, after expulsion of Akaev and Bakiev families, the Islamic atmosphere also undergoes hardship with coming of succeeding county leaders. This fight is between the leading groups in the system of unbelief. And they will use all means and methods such as gossiping, buhtan, and hypocrisy. Therefore, we call Kyrgyzstan’s Muslims to be careful in such dirty processes that are harmful for the afterlife!
Certainly, we cannot stand aside seeing that the Ummah’s interests are behind these events. Therefore, every thought, political fight, actions and ideological guidance must comply with the Shariah. In shaa Allah, we will continue ideological and political fight to preserve the Islamic climate that Allah is pleased with; protect it from any attacks of the Kufr’s puppets; disclose their plans to alienate from the religion or to deceive the Ummah.
