Establishment parties sweep Kyrgyzstan's election

Whether they can form a grand coalition remains unclear

BISHKEK (Reuters) -- Two establishment parties looked set to dominate Kyrgyzstan's parliament after Sunday's election, but it remained unclear if they could form a grand coalition after a series of internal rifts plagued the previous ruling alliance.

The Birimdik (Unity) party of President Sooronbai Jeenbekov's closest supporters led the count with 24.53% of the vote, according to preliminary data published by the Central Asian country's election authority.
