Almazbek Atambayev: SDPK to support candidacy of Sooronbay Jeenbekov

Almazbek Atambayev is sure that SDPK will support Sooronbay Jeenbekov as a candidate for the presidency of Kyrgyzstan at its congress. The head of state said this to journalists.

According to him, he has known Sooronbay Jeenbekov since 1995. Then he was a deputy of the parliament together with the president. In the first year, they created Reform faction, which included 29 deputies out of 70 and which the president did not like very much.

«Sooronbay Sharipovich was my assistant. All these 20 years I know him as a decent, honest man. It was difficult for him because his relatives took various positions that time, but Jeenbekov is a man of idea, a decent and straight man, «Almazbek Atambayev is sure.

«It would be a good choice for the country. Moreover, after last year’s referendum, almost all economic issues and many others will be in the hands of the government. I think that in the beginning of September a government will be formed, which will work until 2020. Many simply missed the moment, the country is already different. Many live in the past," he concluded.
