Kyrgyz are voting in a constitutional referendum that could shift key powers from the president to the prime minister and effectively outlaw same-sex marriage. Voters in the mostly Muslim former Soviet republic will approve or reject the entire package of 26 proposed amendments with a single "yes" or "no" vote. President Almazbek Atambaev and Prime Minister Sooronbai Jeenbekov were among early voters in Bishkek. (RFE/RL's Kyrgyz Service)
