Kurmanbek Saliyevich Bakiyev (Kyrgyz: Курманбек Салиевич (Сали уулу) Бакиев, Qurmanbek Saliyeviç (Sali Uulu) Baqiyev; born 1 August 1949) is a politician who was the second President of Kyrgyzstan, from 2005 to 2010.

Bakiyev was re-elected in the 2009 presidential election.[1]

On 7 April 2010, after bloody riots in the capital overturned the government, Bakiyev reportedly fled to the southern city of Osh.[2] He resigned on 15 April 2010.[3][4] Otunbayeva said she would press ahead to bring Bakiyev to trial.[5]
