New presidential election date set in Kyrgyzstan
Kurmanbek Bakiyev was deposed earlier this month in an uprising that left more than 80 people dead and thousands injured in the capital, Bishkek.
He fled to neighboring Kazakhstan, from where, according to the interim government, he tendered his official resignation.
Bakiyev, however, insists presidential power belongs to him as long as he is alive.
Bakiyev now is in Belarus, where he is expected to have protection until the interim government seeks to extradite him.
