Kyrgyzstan parliament adopted new constitution
Cynthia Miley at 12:00 AM ET

On November 8, 2006, the People's Assembly of Kyrgyzstan adopted a new constitution restricting presidential authority in a political compromise between opposition party members and pro-government supporters. The new constitution enlarged the parliament to 90 deputies, enhanced the power of the legislature, and removed the president's authority to appoint the prime minister. President Kurmanbek Bakiyev approved the new constitution the following day and signed additional amendments in October 2007. After the country's April 2010 revolution, Kyrgyzstan voters approved another new constitution.
