This morning is a surprising morning for me because I am looking at yesterday’s referendum results. It is the usual 80% attendance and 75% voting ‘yes’. It was likely that people would vote ‘yes’ but did they know that there are quotas to be introduced?
The NGOs and political scientists are concerned about the time limits within which referendum was organized and the flawed voting process. President Bakiev decided that the parliament should be dissolved. My concern is whether the quotas for women and young people will be really implemented in the new parliament and how potential candidates will prepare to elections if they are to happen in a month.
