Kyrgyzstan's parliament votes to appoint new prime minister

Published Wed Jun 17 2020 13:35:08 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
Kyrgyzstan’s parliament has voted to appoint a new prime minister two days after his predecessor resigned amid a scandal over whether the government illegally sold radio frequencies. The lawmakers on Wednesday almost unanimously approved the candidacy of Kubatbek Boronov, the former emergency minister who was at the helm of country’s fight against the coronavirus. His predecessor, Mukhammedkalyi Abylgaziyev, resigned Monday. He denied any involvement in the frequencies scandal, but said he was stepping down because “in today’s difficult conditions, when the country confronts the threat of coronavirus infection and struggles with its consequences for the economy, the government must work stably and enjoy the full confidence of citizens.”
