Kyrgyz PM: Cabinet to resign

BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) -- Kyrgyz Prime Minister Felix Kulov announced his Cabinet's resignation Tuesday, saying the move was prompted by disagreements with Parliament.

"By our move we are trying to speed up new parliamentary elections. This is a way out of a crisis and a way to intensify democratic process," Kulov told reporters, adding that he would submit the Cabinet's resignation to Bakiyev for signing in a few hours.

Kulov's deputy, Daniyar Usenov, said the Cabinet would ask Bakiyev to also dissolve Parliament and call new elections.

Last month, after a week of increasingly angry opposition protests which were supported by Parliament, Bakiyev was forced to sign constitutional amendments curtailing his powers and giving broader authority to Parliament and the Cabinet.

Usenov said Tuesday that the adoption of the new Constitution was "a mistake" and made it impossible for the Cabinet to work with Parliament.
