NewEurasia - Kazakhstan

Has a look at the main contenders vying for Astana's most important job.

Not much to report from the campaign so far, other than the news that 600 foreign observers will monitor the vote (according to the director of the Foreign Ministry consular service department) and the main opposition contender, Zharmakhan Tuyakbay, has announced his election program. I haven't a clue whats contained in it, as the government controlled news agency has no details. Now I wonder why that is?

Meanwhile SpaceWar (not got quite the same ring to it as, say the International Herald Tribune or Voice of America) has an opinion piece about America's new best friend.

Happy reading!
