Daniar Toktogulovich Usenov[1] (Kyrgyz: Данияр Токтогулович Үсөнов) is a Kyrgyz banker and politician who has been Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan since October 2009. He previously served as Mayor of Bishkek.[2]


Born in Frunze (now Bishkek) in 1960, Usenov graduated from the Frunze Polytechnics Institute in 1982.[3] Following two years of military service, he worked as a mining engineer before entering politics in 1990.

His political career has involved positions in the Kara-Balta city administration, Chuy Oblast state administration, and (in 1995-2000) the national Legislative Assembly. In early 1999, Usenov declared opposition to policies of President Askar Akayev. His company Eridan faced numerous tax inspections that forced him declare bankruptcy. Usenov was also barred from running for parliament in early 2000. On 10 May 2006, under President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, he began serving as Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs. In early 2007 Usenov was appointed as chairman of the top Kyrgyz bank Ineximbank, which is involved in building a cement factory and developing numerous real estate projects in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.[4][5] On 10 October 2007, he was appointed by President Bakiyev to replace Arstanbek Nogoev as Mayor of Bishkek.[2]
