Amendments to the Constitution will benefit only the political elites

“It is obvious that in order to fight corruption, it is not necessary to change the Constitution; other measures are needed. In order to improve the work of the political parties, there is no need to change the constitution, it is necessary to change the parties themselves, or rather their qualitative component. We need to work on ideas, on the formation of the party elite. It is all much more complicated than just changing the Basic Law”, said Tamerlan Ibraimov, PhD in law, director of the Center for Political and Legal Studies, in an article written exclusively for cabar.asia.

Low confidence in the government is explained by the lack of change

“To raise the authority of the government, Kyrgyzstan urgently needs managers who know how to set goals and achieve them, strictly protecting national interests and having expert way of thinking. Change of elites is not to be held according to the criteria of age, but according to the criteria of professional skills and merit. This is not about tens or hundreds, but about thousands of new leaders of Kyrgyzstan at all levels, who can in principle solve any problems in a new way. This will greatly enhance public confidence in the government”, said Zainidin Kurmanov, Professor, Doctor of Historical Sciences (Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek), in an article written exclusively for cabar.asia.
