Tursunbek Akun elected as an ombudsman

Tursunbek Akun

Tursunbek Akun reminds me of hunger strikes, bragging about his experiences during Chechen war and senseless speeches.  Same old faces, same politics, maybe a little bit easier on gender than Bakir uulu. I still wonder why his State Human Rights Commission had to be dissolved?

Nominated by the President for this seat and elected, it seems that things are going to be this way from now on. Once the President nominates someone, the dominating party Ak Jol supports them and then we play democracy.

Irony: usually human rights activists challenge the state which infringes upon human rights and freedoms. Why do then representatives of the State vote to elect the new Ombudsman?
