    On October 15, 2017, Kyrgyzstan held its second peaceful power transfer leading to delegation of authority between the members of the Social Democratic Party, which continues to be the ruling party holding the most parliamentary seats. The competition between the two main candidates running for president resulted in a resounding first-round victory of Sooronbai Jeenbekov, the former prime minister and the chosen candidate of outgoing President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev, while his main opponent Omurbek Babanov, the former prime minister and the leader of the opposition Respublika Party, came second.
