Kyrgyzstan: Political System
Kyrgyzstan is a parliamentary democracy. At the head of the state is a
president who is directly elected by the people every 5 years. You can be
re-elected as often as you like. The parliament is a unicameral system that is
elected every 5 years. There are currently 75 MPs. In principle there are only
three significant political parties in the country. The country is, however,
governed by a strong presidency, although there are hardly any major tensions or
conflicts in the country. It is on the way from a planned economy to a social
market economy. According to official announcements, unemployment is around 20%
- although this is only recorded in cities. Statistics for the rural areas are
still missing today.
