Overwhelming majority of voters endorse new Kyrgyz constitution: early results
Early results from Sunday's referendum showed that over 90 percent of the voters endorsed Kyrgyzstan's new constitution, the Central Electoral Commission said early Monday, Xinhua reported.
The commission made the announcement on its webside after finishing counting of votes from 90 percent of polling stations.
The new charter would give legitimacy to the Kyrgyz interim government that took power after former President Kurmanbek Bakiyev was ousted in April. The interim government dissolved the parliament and abolished the constitutional court.
