A Kyrgyz Suprise

Over at RadioFreeEurope/RadioLiberty. The internationally popular Roza Otunbaeva's nomination was rejected by parliament for the job of Foreign Minister.

I had read that she wasn't especially popular in Kyrgyzstan, but still, seemed to be the best person for the job. Could this be linked to the Uzbek refugee fiasco? Are some annoyed that Kyrgyzstan's neighbour fell out with its little brother over the issue? Will she become part of the opposition, or remain in government? Who will be nominated as an alternative FM? More questions than answers tonight.
