    According to statement, president of Kyrgyzstan's Social Democratic Party has withdrawn from the governing parliamentary coalition.

    BISHKEK (Sputnik) The president of Kyrgyzstan's Social Democratic Party (SDPK) has withdrawn from the governing parliamentary coalition, SDPK said in a statement on its website Monday.

    "The SDPK faction in the Jogorku Kenesh [Supreme Council] of the Kyrgyz Republic declares its withdrawal from the coalition of the parliamentary majority created on the basis of the November 2, 2015, coalition agreement and, accordingly, the termination of its activities due to the loss of parliamentary majority," SDPK said.

    President Almazbek Atambayev's party said long-standing disagreements among rival lawmakers have been exposed in an ongoing bid to amend the Central Asian state's constitution.

    "The SDPK faction calls on the lawmakers to create a more stable coalition, to continue constructive work to implement the strategic objectives facing the country, and expresses its readiness to cooperate with all political forces in parliament that share the policy of sustainable social and economic development on the path of democracy," it added.
