Nazarbayev Suffering From Azeri Syndrome

That's the condition which makes you harshly clamp down on opponents as the election comes ever closer (even if you are out in front by a country mile). Whilst not busying itself attempting to sue renegade comedians, the Astana authorities have been ruffling the oppositions feathers. In a disgusting attack, off-duty police officers severely beat relatives of a leading member of For a Just Kazakhstan coalition. It all begs the question, was Nazarbayev taking the mick when he said he wanted to chair the OSCE in 2009? I mean he cant seriously expect to do so with such highly undemocratic behaviour.
