The Referendum

Kyrgyz Republic Embassy press release, 13–15 February 1996

Some few remarks on "Press Release #1" distributed by "Kyrgyz Republic Embassy" February 13-15.

The benefits of third Kyrgyz referendum held on February 10 is doubtful. The old Kyrgyz constitution was not bad and president Akayev was a chairman of the Constitutional comission which worked that Constitution out. The state power was divided into 3 branches before this referendum. Now - some negative sides of it.

I can make a lot of other remarks, but the most grievious thing is that Kyrgyz authorities use the democratic measure - referendum - quite for other aims.
