The president said one priority of the new government will be to tap the economic potential of Kyrgyzstan to meet the needs of society and the people.

She also stressed that new government will concentrate on establishing new cultural policies to protect traditional culture amidst globalization.

Otunbayeva's inauguration came one day after the Central Election Commission announced that Kyrgyzstan's new constitution had been overwhelmingly approved last Sunday in a nationwide constitutional referendum.

The new constitution creates a parliamentary democracy and gives legitimacy to the interim government that took power after former President Kurmanbek Bakiyev was ousted in April.

Otunbayeva will serve as president until 2011 elections.
