The decision of the new president is related to the economic and epidemiological difficulties in the country.
On January 22, the new head of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov announced that he refused to hold a lavish inauguration ceremony on January 28. Thus, the new president was against the banquet, motorcade, and other events, which require a lot of money, as reported by the press office of the president.
Japarov noted that, given the political and economic situation, as well as the spread of the pandemic coronavirus infection, it is necessary to cancel the events burdensome for the national economy.
He thanked the organizing committee for developing an action plan in line with the well-established traditions, standards, and procedures for the inauguration.
It must be added that on January 20, the CEC, within the framework of a resolution, declared Sadyr Japarov the winner of the presidential elections held on January 10 of this year.
At the same time, the CEC decided to issue a certificate and insignia to Zhaparov — a breastplate and a standard of the president with his surname, name, and patronymic, the dates of the term of his presidency engraved on it.
