Parliament Asks Akayev to Crackdown

by Laurence on 3/22/2005

According to the latest AP report:

Kyrgyzstan’s newly installed parliament has asked President Askar Akayev to consider imposing emergency rule to quell opposition-led protests that have severely threatened the government’s grip on the country’s south.

Akayev has vowed not to resort to emergency measures, but he could cite the legislature’s request Tuesday as an indication that the public wants a crackdown on the weekslong protests that have put the opposition in control of a large swath of the south.
