Kyrgyzstan Passes New Constitution Updated: 2010-06-28 00:00:00 KST

Kyrgyzstan passed a new constitution in a national referendum on Sunday amid ruins following a deadly ethnic violence in which a reported 2-thousand people were killed and some 400-thousand Uzbek minorities forced to flee their homes.
Media reports say the head of the interim government Roza Otunbeava declared that the referendum which drew an estimated 65.1 percent of the voters is valid, adding her government would no longer be called "interim."
The latest outcome is considered a significant development towards democracy in the Central Asian country battered after street protests in April kicked out the former government led by President Kurmanbek Bakiyev .
President Otunbeava is expected to establish an assembly to vote on legislation until parliamentary elections in October.
