Kyrgyz gov't meeting opens with absence of half cabinet members

BISHKEK, July 13 (Xinhua) -- The Kyrgyz interim government's routine cabinet meeting opened here on Tuesday with half of the 14 cabinet members failing to show up for different reasons.

The meeting failed after no resolutions concerning the nation's future had been discussed and adopted as half of the cabinet members did not attend the meeting, including First Deputy Prime Minister Almaz Atambayev, Defense Minister Ismail Isakov and Deputy Prime Minister Omurbek Tekebayev who submitted his resignation on Monday.

Local analysts said the real reason for their absence is that they refused to attend the meeting because of the nation's worsening situation and uncertain future.

According to the interim government's Information and Consultancy Center, "the interim government is still functioning, but it is not clear when the new government will be created."

At the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Azimbek Beknazarov said the failure of the meeting "is very woeful and will make the situation worse."

Kyrgyzstan's caretaker President Roza Otunbayeva looked quite calm at the meeting and did her best to calm down her colleagues.

Otunbayeva signed on Monday a decree on the formation of the interim government, which will consist of 17 ministries and a national council.

Under the decree, the cabinet will include a prime minister, a first deputy prime minister, deputy prime ministers, ministers and chairman of the national council.

Kyrgyzstan held a referendum last month to adopt a new constitution that makes the country a parliamentary republic. Otunbayeva has pledged to hold parliamentary elections in October.
