Both the incoming and outgoing Kyrgyzstan parliaments have agreed to stop the power struggle that has raged on for the past week in the absence of President Askar Akayev. Kyrgyzstan's Prime Minister Kurmanbek Bakiyev has been confirmed as the Interim Leader, and has recognized Kyrgyzstan's new parliament as legitimate.

The outgoing and incoming parliaments of Kyrgyzstan Monday agreed to suspend their battle for power in President Askar Akayev's absence, the BBC reports.

The political schism flared after the two different parliaments both claimed legitimacy only days after Akayev fled the country last week, presumably to Russia.

The High Court ruled Friday the Feb. 27 parliamentary elections were invalid and ordered the old parliament to reconvene. But Acting Prime Minister Kurmanbek Bakiyev then signed an order saying most of the new parliament would be allowed to stay on, the Financial Times said.

The controversy persists over the June 26 date set for the election of a successor to Akayev.

The speaker of the new parliament has suggested the old assembly was wrong to set a date since Akayev has not formally resigned.

Kyrgyzstan's new government is already stepping up and offering compensation to small buisnesses that may have suffered losses through this political unreast. They are asked to send letters to the government, which has promised "We shall check everything".

With any luck things can begin to return to normal in Kyrgyzstan.

Once again, the power hungry elite come to an agreement. After seeing no easy victory and their pawns being expended. Their little scuffle brought worldwide attention, and that sort of thing just isn't good for politics anywhere. So they'll hold off and restructure so they all get some piece of the pie for their personal power, and nothing will change for the people in the streets.
