Azerbaijan, Baku, October 21 / Trend V. Zhavoronkova /
The reform in the Kyrgyz government will not greatly affect the image of Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, Russian expert on Central Asia, Leonid Gusev, said.
"I think that this reform will not greatly affect Bakiyev's image ", Senior Fellow at the Institute of International Studies of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Moscow State Institute of the International Relations, Gusev, told Trend via e-mail.
All members of the Kyrgyz Cabinet of Ministers headed by Prime Minister Igor Chudinov resigned during the meeting of the Kyrgyz government, held with participation of Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev on Ocotber 20.
Moreover, during an expanded meeting the President said that the government but for Office, will consist of fourteen ministries.
Many experts said that this formulation leads to new appointments, since at least several ministries are resigned and removed in a new structure.
The first appointments have been launched. The President signed a decree to appoint Daniyar Usenov Prime-Minister, RIA Novosti reported
He worked as head of the presidential administration and is included in the list of 100 richest people in Kyrgyzstan.
"As to how correctly the reform has been planned, it's hard to say anything definitely, but I think that it has not been planned rather correctly", Gusev said.
Politician cited leader of the organization "Citizens Against Corruption" Tolekan Ismailova's words.
She said that preparation for the reform was held behind closed doors.
"No one saw or heard, how and what will be changed. Few people decided that it would be better. One just moved the figures on the chessboard. There is no balance of power. There is no sense to tell that authority will be better till a balance appears, " Tolekan Ismailov said.
