I wish I could understand this

Latvian politics seems to be extraordinarily complicated:
Latvian president Valdis Zatlers has called for the dissolution of parliament after MPs blocked an anti-corruption probe against a prominent politician.
The move means a referendum will be held in the next few months on whether to break up parliament and hold new elections.
Somewhere in there a £6.4 billion international bail-out, a presidential election in parliament next week and, undoubtedly, a good deal more. As the article says, political turmoil is indicated.
