Kyrgyzstan: Fears over constitutional referendum as polls close
Al Jazeera, 11 Apr 2021
Polls in Kyrgyzstan's constitutional referendum have now closed.
People there have been voting on proposed changes to the constitution that could see President Sadyr Japarov expand his powers.
Critics say the referendum is Japarov's attempt to impose a more authoritarian form of rule.
