Kyrgyzstan Constitution Politics

It appears that a referendum on the Kyrgyz Constitution is still possibly in the works. Bakiev announced that the country should prepare for one through the summer.

The Law Academy is looking into publishing a short pamphlet on the basics of the different systems and distributing it to educate the people. This education would be vital. Presidential systems are quite popular here, but there has been a push towards a parliamentary system.

I think it would be fascinating to see a parliamentary system implemented here. A country (and region) with a tendency towards super-presidential systems could really benefit from a parliamentary system.
