78-year-old President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov hospitalized. For the first years of his reign, it was announced officially.
The Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic reported that “according to experts, a full medical examination and subsequent treatment will take some time.”
– Never, in 25 years of Karimov’s presidency, the official authorities were not informed about his illness. There was no comment when he was gone for 20 days, when there was talk about the fact that he’s in a coma… Now, about that Cabinet announced officially. So the situation is really bad. And Brezhnev possible option when all learned of the death of the ruler a few days later. But with the departure of Karimov nothing will not change dramatically. The authoritarian state does not crumble. The receiver will have no problems. It has long been determined. My version is that the future of the Uzbek leader is the current Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Shavkat mirzijaev. It is close to the President’s family and has the highest position in the elite groups. However, if the change of ruler will be held in accordance with the Constitution, the President will be the Chairman of the Senate of Uzbekistan, and it is not public and no known political figure.
