ALMATY, Kazakhstan—Kazakhstan’s parliament was poised Wednesday to declare President Nursultan Nazarbayev “leader of the nation” for life and grant him immunity from criminal prosecution and extensive powers after his departure from office.
And the Senate of Kazakhstan approved just a few days later! (Central Asia Online: “Senate approves Nazarbayev’s ‘leader of nation’ status“)
The bill awaits Nazarbayev’s signature.
Will he sign it? Or will he veto it? What do you think?
