More "Reformist" Offspring

According to IWPR, Dariga Nazarbayeva, daughter of Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev, is converting her Asar youth group into a political party, probably as a stepping-stone to succeed her father as President in the near future. Nazarbayeva already more or less controls the state news agency, and it wouldn't surprise me if she consolidated her position as "heir," or even succeeds during her father's lifetime so she can gradually assume control of the relevant power blocs.
