La Croix (France): Former RK Deputy Prime Minister Oraz Zhandosov: A scenario similar to the Arab revolutions is not excluded in Kazakhstan

Написано 11 Июль, 2012 в категории Politics

     La Croix, a daily French general-interest Roman Catholic newspaper, in a report, that is sent from Almaty by BENJAMIN QUÉNELLE and entitled “Le Kazakhstan bousculé dans son modèle pétrolier”, quoted Kairat Kelimbetov, Deputy Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, as saying: “At Zhanaozen, there has been a problem. We are working to resolve it. And we are launching a program, in other cities, in order to prevent its recurrence”.

     “Beyond the facts, the events in Zhanaozen have revealed the extent of the exasperation among a growing part of country’s population with the regime, where oil and systemic corruption have created inequalities. “One half of the economy is owned by Nazarbayev, as the other half belongs to his family and friends!”, Salamat annoyingly says, being anonymous among others, in Almaty, disgusted by those young rich, driving a Bentley, building mountain chalets, and inviting Russian show biz stars for a few hours of partying.

     “One way or another, 60% of the population lives in poverty. At the other end, two to three billion dollars have been annually disappearing in bribes through the public contracts”, Kanat Berentayev, an independent economist, says.

     In a society, which is still poorly structured politically, the opposition failed to get creative and attractive. In Almaty, monthly events are organized to commemorate the victims of Zhanaozen. But they have been mobilizing only a few dozen people.

     A scenario similar to the Arab revolutions, where the dispute arose from the social anger of young people, is not excluded here”, Oraz Zhandosov, a former figure of the ruling system and the opposition, who now heads an economic think-tank, warns.

     Thanks to oil, Kazakhstan is rich but there is no real model of development. Our country is following a path that ultimately could prove dangerous: if Nazarbayev’s pyramid does fall, there would be no structure as replacement”.

    There is no replacement to N.Nazarbayev.

    Nazarbayev is a great man but he is not always right.

    Whatever happens in Kazakhstan, the power will remain in the hands of Nazarbayev’s inner circle.

    Nazarbayev’s pyramid isn’t Pyramid of Khufu. It would not stay untouched even for one year after his dismissal.

    Any Kazakh politicians who dare compete with members of Nazarbayev’s inner circle will be forced to leave Kazakhstan.

    Clans, regional elites, and financial magnates are a huge
    presence in Kazakhstan’s politics and social life. Working
    behind the scenes, they have placed regional governors and ministers in power for over twenty
    years and define the nature of politics today.

    So-called power brokers have got formidable reach and connections in Kazakhstan’s politics. Dynamic decision-making is between the president and power brokers. The process of Influencing in bilateral and multilateral relations with Kazakhstan must be based on the recognition of this reality.

  10. Observer написал,

    These power brokers are invisible to Kazakhstan’s people. And the ruling regime largely depends on those who are making real polotics. i.e. political brokerage. Kazakhstan’s leader may view himself very weak contrary to what is often assumed in the West.

  11. Observer написал,

    The country he rules is in fact
    not over-governed but under-governed. It should be noted that Kazakhstan’s leader is not omnipotent and that he depends on power brokers.

    The supposedly “authoritarian” ruler of Kazakhstan has been functioning under conditions of actual under-government, which he lacks the
    resources to correct. In the absence of such resources, he resorts to bluster and bombast, and to direct appeals to the public at large. This explains Nazarbayev’s successful
    effort to renationalize part of the Kazakh oil industry.
