Kyrgyz MPs set presidential election for Oct 30

BISHKEK, June 30 (Reuters) - Kyrgyzstan's parliament on Thursday set Oct. 30 as the date for a presidential election designed to move the country closer to completing constitutional reforms aimed at creating Central Asia's first parliamentary democracy.

The mandate of current President Roza Otunbayeva is due to expire on Dec. 31. She has run the country since April 2010, when President Kurmanbek Bakiyev was toppled by a violent revolt. (Reporting by Olga Dzyubenko; Writing by Dmitry Solovyov; Editing by Robin Paxton)
