A New Constitution

Word is that Bakiev has agreed to a new constitution, and has signed off on allowing parliament to make the necessary changes.

Stick to it Bakiev. It's not worth dragging the country down into another revolution to keep your disproportionate power.

Will the opposition be satisfied with this? Bakiev certainly has bought himself some time, but he has to realize that there are a lot of people in Kyrgyzstan who want some real reform (peacefully) and they expect the president to do something.

Parliament appointing the PM and the cabinet could be very interesting. There has been a lot of controversy over cabinet appointments and lots of people have gone in and out. But until I see some real changes, I expect we'll continue with business as usual.
