Kyrgyzstan to hold Dec. 11 vote on boosting PM’s powers

Kyrgyzstan’s parliament approved plans on Wednesday to hold a Dec. 11 referendum on proposed reforms of the constitution that would strengthen the powers of the prime minister, parliament’s press office said. Opponents of the reforms, which have been criticized by international monitoring bodies, say they are ultimately aimed at extending the rule of President Almazbek Atambayev. Atambayev, 60, is barred by the constitution from running for a second presidential term when his mandate ends next year and critics say the proposed reform would enable him to become a powerful prime minister.
