BISHKEK: Kyrgyzstan President Sooronbai Jeenbekov resigns on Thursday saying that he wanted to prevent clashes between security forces and protesters who demanded his removal from office.

In a statement, the President said he feared that violence might break out if protesters carry out a threat to march on his compound.

Earlier, Sooronbai Jeenbekov’s allies had dominated the Oct. 4 parliamentary election, but subsequent protests toppled the government and forced the authorities to annul it.
