Central Asia: All In The Family

The expected victory of Ilham Aliyev in Azerbaijan's presidential elections on Oct. 15 could signal the beginning of a wave of nepotism in Central Asia. Aliyev, 42, is son of 80-year-old Heydar Aliyev, who stepped down for health reasons. The opposition and other observers alleged that the election was rigged in the younger Aliyev's favor -- a poor omen for democracy if true. Now, some fear that Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev, 62, and Uzbekistan President Islam Karimov, 65, may eventually try to hand over power to their children. Nazarbayev's daughter, Dariga Nazarbayeva, 40, has created a political party. Karimov's daughter, Gulnora Karimova, 31, is adviser to the Uzbek ambassador in Moscow. Both women have already had prominent business careers. EDITED BY Edited by Rose Brady
