The Kyrgyz parliament has approved a proposal from the government to privatise state-owned operator Megacom, Tazabek reported.

Kyrgyzstan's state property management fund has been unsuccessfully attempting to offload the state’s stake in Megacom for over a decade.

Previous attempts to accomplish this have included auctions that ultimately failed.
