Kyrgyzstan annuls elections after protestors storm parliament

Following violent protests, the electoral authorities in Kyrgyztan have annulled the results of the parliamentary elections. After only four out of 16 parties that were eligible to vote for in the elections passed the threshold of 7% for representation in the parliament protests had broken out.

Out of these four parties three have close ties to the current president of Kyrgyztan Sooronbai Jeenbekov who accused that "certain political forces" are now trying to illegally seize power.
