Kyrgyzstan's pro-governmental Ata Zhurt party has nominated Kamchibek Tashiyev to run in the upcoming presidential election, the Interfax news agency reported Monday.

Tashiyev is a co-leader of the party, which was formed in the middle of the 2000s. The party has served in the ruling coalition since it entered parliament following the 2010 parliamentary election.

The Central Asian country is scheduled to elect a new president on Oct. 30 to replace interim President Roza Otunbayeva, who took office amid domestic chaos after a revolt toppled then President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in April 2010.
