Kyrgyz parliament seeks to hold emergency meeting Wednesday: report

(Reuters) - Kyrgyzstan’s parliament will try to convene for an emergency meeting on Wednesday, local news website 24.kg reported, citing lawmakers who failed to gather a quorum on Tuesday.

Opposition groups who say they have seized power in protests that broke out after a disputed parliamentary election have urged the outgoing legislature to install a provisional cabinet and thus legitimize the transfer of power.
