Even first-graders know that “democracy” or at least have an idea of its principles. However, unfortunately, in fact, declared from high tribunes of the democratic foundations of the state, frequently contradict with the very theory of an independent society. Sometimes, it’s just a screen to cover up the dictatorship and tyranny. And this very picture can be seen today in Tajikistan.
Let me remind that in January, the Tajik parliament approved caused a lot of noise, and became popular to the whole world the bill “About the founder of peace and harmony – Leader of the Nation”, which allows Emomali Rahmon will no longer worry about his fate and prosperity of his children. According to the new Constitution only Rahmon has the right to the lifelong presidency. In addition, it should be payed attention to another amendment to the Basic Law, reducing the voting age for presidential candidates up to 30 years. This is the head of state made his son a “legal foundation” for participation in the presidential election in 2020 .
The bonus for the title of “Leader of the Nation” have numerous privileges and preferences, which Rahmon retains and after removal of the presidential term. For example, the right shall remain its address to the people, to participate in public events and act on them. Implementation of all recommendations of “Leader of the Nation” will become mandatory for state agencies and important to the domestic and international issues will be addressed in consultation with him. After retirement, he cannot be arrested, detained, prosecuted for acts committed during the presidency. Immunity guarantees extended to the property of “Leader of the Nation” and the members of his large family.
Such political news provoked an explosion of indignation among the population, and in expert circles. In discussing this topic, commentators write, “Acting head of the Tajik regime perpetuated and prepared the way for the board to his son. Amendments entered in force Emomali Rahmon to strengthen the family power and sweep the political field from any manifestation of dissent. ”
The a have presented it to the world community as an expression of the will of the Tajik people. Can we regard it as boundless love and gratitude of the people or whether it is abuse of authority and violation of the modern democratic principles? I think the answer is obvious.
Simple Tajik people, of course, afraid of expressing the dissatisfaction with the decision of the head of state and will speak out loudly that is fed up with the antics “benefactor.” You will not hear from the commoner that taken care of and priority of President Emomali Rahmon for the entire period of his rule were he and his numerous relatives.
Meanwhile, Tajik “Leader of the Nation” on the whole making money, is concerned only with personal material of, the drug business, the distribution of its territory between the children and relatives, the monopolization of the most important areas of the economy and state structure, “the president’s family” members. Fully discredited obscene behavior, fully devoting himself to “love affairs” and alcohol.
Using the auspices of his father, now president and scion adjusts itself under the country’s economy, controlling all financial flows. On behalf of the “young prince” Rustam Emomali increased customs duties, it created favorable conditions for business.
Insatiable appetite daughter Tahmina able to hit any imagination. The country is frequently observed fuel shortage. This is due to the fact that “Lady Ofat” ( “Lady of Distress”), as it is called, gets through his company “Tadzhiran” large batches of fuel and lubricants, and sends them to the big warehouse. This initiative is linked Tahmina with the intention to monopolize the market of petroleum products and pricing to control the process by creating an artificial shortage. It has already taken control of fuel suppliers LLC “Gazpromneft-Tajikistan”, “Anahita”, “Nouri Dilshod”, “Zeta Gas” and “Muhammad Pulod”.
Such actions Emomali Rahmon and his clan caused a serious discontent among the population, which is suffering from the sharp deterioration in the economy and declining living standards. Nothing can be done, each nation worthy of the president, whom he chooses. Therefore it is not surprising that such scoundrels run the country. We can only say one thing, while the “Rahmon – Dynasty” will not leave the political arena of Tajikistan, the common people will continue to live in poverty and sink in the swamp arbitrariness of officials, which can drain only the people.
