Kyrgyz Parliament lifts state of emergency in Bishkek

The Kyrgyz Parliament has cancelled the state of emergency in the capital city of Bishkek.

At the same time, the head of the central electoral commission has said that parliamentary elections may be held on 20 December 2020 and the presidential vote on 17 January 2021.

The state of emergency was imposed amid political tensions in the country after protesters stormed and seized the parliament building, which also serves as the presidential office.
