Kyrgyz government resigns after coalition break-up

Kyrgyzstan's government resigned on Wednesday after President Almazbek Atambayev's party quit the ruling majority coalition earlier this week.

The office of Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev made the announcement on October 26, two days after Atambaev's Social Democratic Party (SDP) announced it was leaving the six-party ruling coalition.

The SDP, which controls the largest faction in parliament, left the coalition because it rejects proposed constitutional reforms on expanded powers for the prime minister and parliament advocated by three other parties, Reuters reports.
