Future president - among participants of National Council

There is a future president of Kyrgyzstan among participants of the National Council for Sustainable Development, President Almazbek Atambayev said today at the meeting.

He noted that he was pure before the people and he did not need to be «protected." The head of state noted that the republic needs a successor, who can protect the independence of Kyrgyzstan.

«Every Kyrgyzstani will be a successor. The question of the successor was set by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and the Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as all politicians in Kyrgyzstan. I consider the successor of Kyrgyzstanis one who is the successor of his fathers and grandfathers," Almazbek Atambayev said.

«Will the future president be my successor, Akayev or Bakiyev, I don’t know, time will tell. There are elections for this.  A snake has a strip outside, and a person — inside," the head of state said.

The Kyrgyz people are very trustful, and they can be deceived. My task is to hold fair and transparent elections. What happens next, I don’t know.

Almazbek Atambayev

The President reminded that the source of power in Kyrgyzstan is the people, which means that the authorities are on the right track.

«If you don’t defend your people, you won’t be able to leave. Work so that it is clear: there is something to give to the homeland and the people, and you will be pure before God. Be the successors of our Manas. There is already a future president among us. He is sitting here," Almazbek Atambayev concluded.
