The interim government that came to power in the aftermath of last May’s ethnic coup was declared invalid by the high court, throwing the country’s political future into uncertainty. Further, a former deputy prime minister was taken in for questioning because he had called a meeting of former members of parliament to discuss the ruling. Under emergency decrees, such meetings are illegal without permits. It is uncertain what the next steps will be in establishing a new government, or whether the political wrangling will spark unrest.
