The Kyrgyz parliament today adopted a law on expanding the broadcast reach of its radio station, RFE/RL’s Kyrgyz Service reports. The “parliament radio” informs people about the unicameral body’s agenda, debates, and votes that it will hold. The radio broadcasts can currently only be heard by residents of Bishkek and the northern Chui Oblast near the country’s capital.
Parliament speaker Akhmatbek Keldibekov told journalists that talks with local radio stations are under way to make the signal available to every town and village in the country.
