"We see that the legitimate president Sooronbay Jeenbekov is inactive. The MPs are not acting either. Nevertheless, considering the current situation, the country needs firm actions, needs a person who could make decisions, and be responsible for them. We demand from Jogorku Kenesh to finally decide and to elect a person who could serve as prime minister. Otherwise, the mess will continue," said one of the protesters from the stage.

As we reported earlier, on October 5, several thousand protesters gathered at Ala-Too square in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. They detested the results of the parliamentary elections in this country.

The protesters broke through the gates of the White House, the administrative building, where President and the Parliament work. One person deceased, and 590 people were injured in the protests.
