Follow-up on Nazarbayev and Aliyev from Ann Garland

I was intrigued by this whole story today so thought I would read more-
In this article–it turns out Nazarbayev blocked his son’s ex-wife from seeking re-election to Parliament in the Nur Otan Party, which she used to lead, and was named the party’s leader.

Rakhat Aliyev actually wrote a scandalous tell-all book about the long-time Kazakh leader entitled “Godfather-In-Law.” http://www.rferl.org/content/Interview_Rakhat_Aliev_Discusses_Kazakhstans_GodfatherInLaw/1742575.html
