Artykuł Michała Romanowskiego poświęcony wyborom prezydenckim w Kirgistanie zatytułowany The Kyrgyz Presidential Elections: Peaceful Transfer With 5 Caveats ukazał się niedawno w magazynie YaleGlobal Online. Zachęcamy do lektury.

Incumbent President Almazbek Atambayev, appointed in 2011, is constitutionally barred from running for a second term. He is about to leave the scene and do something no leader in Central Asia has done in modern history – peacefully transfer the power and retire. Yet, this is not a story about democracy on the rise.
