Tajikistan vote seen as easy win for strongman Emomali Rahmon

Tajikistan goes to the polls on Sunday in a presidential election expected to make incumbent Emomali Rahmon, in charge since independence in 1992, the longest-ruling leader in the former Soviet state.
Analysts say political and economic reform is vital if the country – the poorest of the post-soviet states – is to avoid the instability and violence it’s experienced in the past.

    Certain cultures are simply incapable of creating functional governments… Clearly a cycle of human suffering has gone on for many generations, yet FOOLS like Shokirjon still focus on the most minute details of the problem… Speak the truth for once, WE ARE TOO PROUD TO LET OUTSIDERS TELL US HOW TO MAKE A GOVERNMENT, BUT TOO STUPID TO PROPERLY GOVERN OURSELVES.
