It is said that 65.1% of citizens turned out to vote for its approval.

The interim head of government, Roza Otunbeava told reporters that the nation is heading toward a legitimate, democratic system, not an interim system.

The change is much needed after the brutal April outburst which led to the former president of Kyrgyzstan to be exiled. There will be an election next year to decide who will take office and replace the exiled leader in 2012.

As more develops an update can be expected.

For now though, are there any countries you feel could use a new constitution or change to the system. How about the age old American idea that we the people vote for presidential candidates but are votes only decide on the members of the Electoral College who really pick the president? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.
