Kyrgyzstan's New Leaders Sets Date for First Elections After Uprising

Kyrgyzstan's interim government says it will hold elections later this year following a constitutional referendum on reducing presidential powers.

The central Asian state also said it was unlikely to make a final decision on allowing the US to retain its lease of a key air base until after the October 10th election, Irish Times reports.

According to BBC News, Omurbek Tekebayev, the new government's deputy head, announced the plans on national television.

He said the new constitution, to be put to a vote on 27 July, would prevent power being concentrated in one place.

The interim government took control after President Kurmanbek Bakiyev was ousted in violent protests on 7 April.
