Kyrgyzstan’s Political crisis: All you need to know

Team Udayavani, Oct 12, 2020, 1:06 PM IST

Since past few days, Kyrgyzstan, is seeing violent protests, Thousands of participants clashed with police forces in the country’s capital, Bishkek

As reported by Vox, Many of Kyrgyzstan’s 6 million people are deeply dissatisfied with the government due to widespread corruption and mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic.

More than 1,200 people have been injured and one person has been killed in street clashes since protests erupted. Police have reportedly used water cannon, stun grenades and tear gas to disperse protesters.

Now, a curfew and strict military restrictions have been imposed, including controls on who can travel in and out of the capital.

It is said that Protests erupted after the results of the parliamentary elections were declared earlier this month, with the Opposition and demonstrators alleging that the results were rigged.

Only four of the 16 parties in the running passed the 7-percent threshold to win seats; two of those four have links to the current administration, and each received about 24 percent support. Parties allied with the government won nearly all the seats in the 120-seat chamber.

The opposition parties have made allegations that the winning parties indulged in vote-buying. However, the elections now have been annulled and will be re-held

President Jeenbekov has said he will resign when a new government is formed and the rule of law is restored.
