BISHKEK, June 15 (Xinhua) — Kyrgyz Prime Minister Mukhammedkalyi Abylgaziev has resigned following allegations of corruption, the government said on Monday.
Before his resignation, Abylgaziev had taken a short-term leave to avoid interference with a corruption investigation over radio frequency resources.
Abylgaziev said in a statement that the accusations made against him by parliament have no basis.
The Kyrgyz parliament raised the issue of the sale of radio frequencies, which was followed by a number of deputies demanding Abylgaziev prove his innocence against allegations of corruption.
“During my two-week vacation, the investigating authorities did not contact me with any questions. I am sure that the investigation will put everything in its place and identify the true perpetrators of the violation of the law,” he said.
Abylgaziev, 52, was appointed on April 20, 2018.
