Another term in power for Nazarbayev?

Kazakshstan goes to the polls this weekend, and the smart money is on President Nazarbayev to win yet another term in power. He's so confident of his victory that aides are already planning his post-election agenda, although that could also be down to the fact he took 91% of the vote in the last elections 6 years ago. But not everyone is happy with their "Elbasy", as the so-called Father of the Nation is known.
