#217: No Comments

Zigeunerin, an excellent photo-blogger, took pictures of these random MPs in Kyrgyzstan as they were voting for their fellow colleagues. Regulations allow MPs to vote for their colleagues within the party in their absence. Although all parties enjoy this regulation (seen in a picture below), it was introduced to make it easier for the ruling Ak Jol Party, which is President Bakiev's creation, to pass any bill. Often, only half of 90 MPs are present, but when voting results are announced, it turns out that almost all have voted.
