The proposed changes to the constitution include increasing the powers of the Prime Minister and Supreme Council, as well as making reforms to the judicial system.They have been put forward by five parties.
The constitutional changes proposed by five political parties would widen the powers of the prime minister and parliament and reform the judicial system.
Under the 2010 constitution, the presidential term is six years, but re-election is barred.
According to local experts, the proposed changes to the Constitution will also severely weaken the role of the Parliament, which will be limited in its right to issue mistrust in the government and dissolve it. This will indeed throw the country back to 2010 and will jeopardize all its previous aspirations to become Central Asia’s only parliamentary democracy.
