From Reuters:
Ousted Kyrgyz Leader Says Not Resigning

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Kyrgyzstan’s ousted President Askar Akayev, in exile in Russia following last week’s coup in the Central Asian state, said on Tuesday that he would not resign.

"So far I have not resigned as president. That’s why I consider myself the one and only legitimate and elected president. At the moment I see no reason to resign," Akayev told Ekho Moskvy radio in an interview.

He said he was staying near Moscow.

I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing for the Kyrgyz people.  All I know is that whoever is in charge . . . needs to buy more vowels.  This country needs ’em.
