The President of Kyrgyzstan intends to purge the ranks of SDPK parliamentary faction.
Deputies from SDPK will be asked to resign
Only eight out of 38 Social Democrats, who received deputy mandates, are more or less active in the political arena. Four out of eight support the policy of the President of the country, the other four oppose it.
Almazbek Atambayev intends to conduct a large-scale rotation and replace 2/3 of the composition of the largest faction in the Parliament.
In the opinion of the incumbent head of state, active and talented politicians from SDPK reserve should come to the place of parliamentarians who did not justify the confidence.
During one of the private meetings with his colleagues, Almazbek Atambayev admitted that he would have to make other, equally sounding personnel decisions.
So the case will not confine to Farid Niyazov's resignation from the post of the head of the presidential staff.
Elections without the brothers Jeenbekov
Sad news awaits the Prime Minister Sooronbay Jeenbekov and ex-speaker of the Parliament Asylbek Jeenbekov. None of the two siblings can lot upon the role of successor.
The first, according to the President, did not cope with the duties of the Prime Minister, as he is not able to make independent decisions. The Prime Minister and his ministers do not show initiative and are only waiting for instructions from above. And the chief of government and his subordinates assess their usefulness and efficiency only judging by frequency of instructions from the President.
The second from the Jeenbekovs' clan, Asylbek, who was considered as one of the reserve options in nominating presidential candidates from SDPK, also failed the casting.
The president’s circle is dissatisfied with the fact that the younger of Jeenbekov brothers recently was completely "lost" in the religion.
Under his rule,
Most likely, the brothers Jeenbekov will have to dissolve the almost formed election headquarters.
Who in SDPK also lost confidence?
The authority of the Social Democrats sitting in Parliament is slowly but surely receding even in the White House. During the meetings of the SDPK faction, the head of the presidential staff repeatedly pointed to the low activity and weak work of the sponsored deputies. And he warned his parliamentarians that if the situation does not change, the organizational conclusions will take place.
The situation has changed, but for the worse. This trend outraged Almazbek Atambayev.
The SDPK faction does not differ by the solidity of its ranks. The Social Democrats in the Parliament divided into three groups: a part of them follows the leader of the faction Isa Omurkulov, the other are subject to the Speaker of Parliament Chynybay Tursunbekov, the remaining are loyal to the ex-speaker Asylbek Jeenbekov.
As experts believe, the nomination of any of these politicians for the first roles in the election campaign will split the entire SDPK into parts. Troubles in the ranks of the party can destroy all plans of Atambayev.
So far, as one of the deputies of SDPK faction admitted, many of his colleagues are packing suitcases. Bad news spreads quickly.
President – lone warrior
In these days, Almazbek Atambayev fights with his opponents alone.
The struggle with Tekebayev and his supporters takes all working hours and, judging by the emotional mood of the President, he is pretty much getting on his nerves.
He also has to take upon the government, work for his image as a spokesperson also.
It seems that only the waiters cope with their duties in the residence among the nearest environment of the President.
The number of opponents of the President can increase. The other two members of the interim government can join the supporters of the disgraced Ata Meken leader. And the high-ranking revolutionaries themselves will occupy the cells in the pretrial detention center of the State Committee for National Security (GKNB).
Recently, Almazbek Atambayev told his colleagues that he had information about misappropriation of $ 5 million by two very famous members of interim government.Kabay Karabekov
The president can put a stake on a neutral candidate
While Almazbek Atambayev unmasks his former comrades-in-arms, the struggle for the right to become the number one candidate for president flares up in the party.
High-ranking Social Democrats do not hesitate to make scandals in public. The quarrel between Isa Omurkulov and Asylbek Jeenbekov, when being on a business trip in the south of the country, is still being discussed on the sidelines.
There are loyal people in the presidential circle, but there are no public politicians who could take a fire upon themselves in a crisis situation.
But most important - there are no political heavyweights next to Atambayev, capable of convincing voters that the president follows the necessary country course.
The quarrels in the party ranks and the growing political crisis may lead to the fact that Atambayev will begin negotiations with neutral presidential candidates. With those, who will provide the necessary guarantees of a political future for the outgoing president.
After all, not only the authority of the SDPK drops, but the President also surrenders his position against this background. Only Almazbek Atambayev himself speaks about the popular support of Almazbek Atambayev.
