Political calm in Kyrgyzstan due to expectation for reforms: expert
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 29 / Trend , V.Zhavoronkova /
The calm in the political arena in Kyrgyzstan is linked with the fact that people waits for the reforms promised by President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, said Kyrgyz expert Orozbek Moldaliyev.
"The calmness is connected with the fact that President Kurmanbek Bakiyev announced the start of major reforms that are expected in the country, and all are in anticipation of what this reform will be, in which direction they will be," Moldaliyev told Trend by telephone from Bishkek.
In Kyrgyzstan, there is certain passivity between the president and the opposition. Autumn, which usually passes with the revitalization of political parties, demonstrates a lack of loud statements and accusations against each other.
According to the Kyrgyz political analyst, this is due to the fact that the acting president of Kyrgyzstan, re-elected in this summer, promised people to make reforms in the country.
"Bakiyev promised that he first would reform the President's Office, and all parallel government structures, as well as the country's economy," said the expert.
Bakiyev also had a lot of promises during the pre-election campaign. The analyst said no serious changed have been observed since the beginning of Bakiyev's second term.
After the election, Bakiyev has repeatedly to address to the Parliament, promising that there will be widely introduced democratic principles, and now people have "stood in anticipation," said Moldaliyev.
However, in his opinion, the opposition in Kyrgyzstan has also a lot of problems, which explains its passivity.
He said in the country, there is a talk about merging parties, but this is problematic.
Newly can inherit old problems of the allied parties, the analyst believes.
