Ousted Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev should participate in Kyrgyz presidential elections, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said on Wednesday.

Ousted Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev should participate in Kyrgyz presidential elections, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said on Wednesday.

"I don't know how elections without the incumbent president could be held. That surprises me. If this [presidential elections without Bakiyev] happens, it will further aggravate the impasse in Kyrgyzstan even more," the Belarusian president said.

Lukashenko said he had invited Bakiyev to Minsk as Kyrgyzstan's current head of state.

The government in Kyrgyzstan was taken over on April 7, after a series of violent riots began which threatened to turn into a civil war. Bakiyev was toppled and left Kyrgyzstan on April 15.

The interim government has pledged to hold honest presidential and parliamentary elections in the next six months.
