    The Kyrgyz interim government will hold a referendum on its new constitution on June 27 and parliamentary elections on October 10, the aide to the country's interim Deputy Prime Minister said on Thursday.

    "A decision about presidential elections has not yet been made. It is possible that they will be held at the same time as the parliamentary elections," the spokesman said.

    Uprisings broke out in Kyrgyzstan on April 6, spreading across the country and leaving at least 84 dead and around 1,600 injured. President Bakiyev was deposed and forced to flee the capital and later the country. An interim government has been ruling the country since April 8.

    A new draft constitution is due to be presented for public consultation on April 25.
