Headline: ASIA/TAJIKISTAN – “New” mandate for a President in power for about thirty years and without opposition

Dushanbe – “Following the Tajik presidential elections on 11 October, President Emomali Rahmon was elected for the sixth time with more than 90% of the votes, which means that in this Central Asian country power has been in the hands of the same person for 28 years and that, if he were to end his mandate, this period would increase to 35 years”. This is what Davide Cancarini, a researcher for the international geopolitical journal “Limes”, and a Central Asian scholar, reports to Agenzia Fides, referring to the socio-political context that characterized the last presidential elections in Tajikistan.
