Kyrgyz president dismisses cabinet after no-confidence vote

BISHKEK: Kyrgyz President Sooronbai Jeenbekov signed a decree to dismiss the cabinet after lawmakers overwhelmingly passed a no-confidence vote against the government of Prime Minister Sapar Isakov, the president’s office said Thursday.

The no-confidence vote followed criticism of the government’s annual report by the opposition party, who viewed the government’s work in 2017 as unsatisfactory.

Among a total of 120 legislators, 102 of them voted to disband the government, with just five voting against the move, an official parliamentary protocol showed.

According to the decree, the prime minister, vice prime minister and other members of the government will continue to fulfill their duties until the formation of a new cabinet.
