Kyrgyzstan interim government pledged constitutional reform
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On April 19, 2010, Kyrgyzstan's interim government released a plan to institute democratic reforms, including a proposed constitutional referendum. The plan sought to move the country towards a parliamentary republic, with significant reductions to the constitutional scope of presidential power. These reforms followed on the heels of an anti-government uprising that forced President Kurmanbek Bakiyev from office and led to the formation of an interim government. The interim government held the promised constitutional referendum, which was passed by the voters, although the government extended the state of emergency in the country as a result of continued ethnic conflicts.
