The formation of a parliamentary system of governance, which was approved by referendum passed in Kyrgyzstan uniquely evaluate by experts.

A referendum on adopting a new constitution was conducted in Kyrgyzstan on Sunday. According to official data, nearly 91 percent of voters supported the draft of the document.

The new draft constitution, proposed by the interim government that came to power after the overthrow of President Kurmanbek Bakiyev in April, significantly weakens the presidential branch, turning Kyrgyzstan into a parliamentary republic. 

However, despite the high percentage of voters for the document, experts' opinion on the effectiveness of such management systems in the Central Asian republic break up.

According to Kyrgyz expert Orozbek Moldaliev, Kyrgyzstan is ready to become a parliamentary republic.

"Presidential rule, not for us," - said Trend Moldaliyev by telephone from Bishkek.

According to him, Askar Akayevs' and Kurmanbek Bakiyevs' presidency in the post-Soviet Kyrgyzstan, one of them comes from the north of the republic, the other - from the south is evidence for it.

Each of the presidents enlisted the support of only one part of the republic, where he came from, said Moldaliyev, and the same always will be.

According to the expert, who considers that Kyrgyzstan is not ready to become a parliamentary republic, just frightened by the prospect of successful development of the country.

According to Bruce Pannier, U.S. expert on Central Asia, the parliamentary system of governance very convenient for Kyrgyzstan, where a lot of influential political figures such as Felix Kulov, Almaz Atambayev, between who often contradictions rises.

The expert also thinks that the heads of the neighbouring countries in the region does not benefit the successful establishment of the parliamentary system in Kyrgyzstan.

"An example of a better system in the region is a threat to their positions so I wouldn't imagine Kyrgyzstan can depend on much help from its neighbours", - said Trend by e-mail Radio Liberty expert Panier.

However, according to Russian expert on Central Asia Sergei Mikheyev, public support for the formation of a parliamentary republic in Kyrgyzstan - it is only one result which  the provisional government of the republic wants to see.

According to the expert, the referendum, in the long term, is unlikely to help Kyrgyzstan to overcome the crisis.

"The parliamentary republic in Kyrgyzstan is actually a path towards a permanent mess, and it will not lead to stabilization of the situation," - told Trend by telephone from Moscow Sergei Mikheyev, deputy director of Center for Political Technologies.
