New PM in Kyrgyzstan

The Jorgoku Kenesh approved Azim Isabekov today as Prime Minister. Handy for Bakiev. It looks like despite the concessions Bakiev made a few months ago that he has managed to further cement his power. He's proving to be quite adept at staying in power.

I'm wondering what will happen to the tandem agreement. Will Isabekov be operating under the same unconstitutional restrictions that Kulov was?

It will be interesting to see where Kulov goes from here.
