Five Kyrgyz opposition parties on Wednesday announced the formation of a coordination council, the second of its kind, amid political turmoil in the country following a botched parliamentary election.

The announcement comes less than 24 hours after another set of 13 opposition parties announced a similar coordination council.

“We are creating a new coordination council that will include the leaders of our parties,” a representative said at a news conference.

The parties of Chon Kazat, Ordo, Yiman Nuru, Reforma and Meken Yntymagy announced their refusal to recognise Sadyr Japarov as Prime Minister and demanded the dissolution of the Kyrgyz parliament.

Kyrgyzstan was plunged into political chaos after a parliamentary election on Sunday saw just four parties from 16 win seats.

Protesters poured into the squares of capital Bishkek and on Monday, stormed the country’s seat of power.

Opposition politician Japarov and Ex-President Almazbek Atambayev were freed from prison by mobs of protesters.

The Kyrgyz Central Election Commission has subsequently annulled the results of the vote.

Meanwhile, the number of people injured in the protests in the country has reached 911, the Health Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

The ministry previously said that the protests against the results of the parliamentary vote left almost 700 people, including around 200 police staffers, injured.

One person was killed in the clashes.

“According to the latest information available as of 12:30 (06:30 GMT) of Oct. 7, 2020, a total of 911 people (169 over the past 24 hours) sought medical assistance at healthcare facilities.

“Of them, 705 people were discharged after receiving urgent assistance, and 205 persons were hospitalised with different injuries, while five of them are in intensive care units.

“One injured person died,” the health ministry said.
