On September 21, an election campaign began in Uzbekistan. The elections themselves will be held on December 23. The nomination of presidential candidates, according to the law, should begin 65 days before the election, that is, October 19. For whom the election campaign will be conducted for three weeks is not clear to anyone. In Uzbekistan, this is called a democratic election ...

At the end of the 80s, a long game called “How to become a democrat” began throughout the Soviet Union. The players were well acquainted with each other, and some were even friends, because from time to time they met in the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU, where they were - who is a member, and who - just a candidate member.

Members and candidate members perfectly grasped the advantage of perestroika, when it was possible to radically change everything in their lives in order to, having changed, have more than they had. For this it was necessary to comply with the main condition - to call yourself the nasty word "democrat".

No, in fact, no one demanded to be a true democrat, especially since it would hardly have happened, it was possible to remain a staunch Leninist and a real communist during off-hours. Some combined communist activities with democratic reforms, even during working hours, since they did not see anything strange for themselves to be in two forms. So it happened in the USSR from the old days: after a mistress, you can call at the party committee to stigmatize the riotous lifestyle of your colleague.

It was profitable to be a democrat in those days: Western countries naively believed that what was said and done, and sent economic aid, lobbied membership in all sorts of organizations, invited to visit. In general, fawn. At first, everything got away with the newly-minted democrats, but then everything returned - “What kind of freedom of speech is this?”, “What are fair elections?”, “We have our own democracy” ...

Many members and candidate members of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU liked the second word - “President”. Usually they pronounced this word with contempt, because they used it exclusively at CPSU congresses, evaluating the anti-human essence of Western leaders (those presidents), who were trying to suppress everything humane in the world, realizing imperial ambitions. Since 1990, the word "president" has firmly entered the lexicon of the Soviet nomenclature along with the post of first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of his country. Often the same person was called the president of a democratic country and the first secretary of the Communist Party Central Committee. In a bad dream do not dream ...

And so it went on all 17 years. Representatives of liberal intelligentsia like Ter-Petrosyan, Shushkevich and Akaev did not stand the test of time, leaving where they shouldn’t have appeared. Stayed veterans and their students and heirs. Comrades Nazarbayev and Karimov are the most resilient of them.

We'll keep silent about Nazarbayev - they have already written a lot, besides, life is guaranteed by law. Islam Abduganiyevich, who formally is no longer the president, is not yet, since the deadline was in January. More precisely, according to the Constitution came out, but according to the law “On the results of the referendum and the basic principles of the organization of state power” can sit out until they choose a new one. That is, Karimov has a choice - either to play preference, or to score, to choose. He chose to sit until December.

That's actually our story ends. More precisely, the game of democracy. Many members and candidate members of the Politburo had a chance to become a man whose name will be written in the history of the country in golden letters - "He was the first secretary of the Central Committee, and the president, and a democrat." But this does not happen. As it turned out, writing and adopting laws that are beautiful and democratic in content does not mean being the president of a democratic country.

Now something strange is happening in Uzbekistan: officially, on television now, various candidates must tell about the future happiness that their compatriots expect if they win. And there are no candidates. Therefore, on the screen He is the one and only Islam Abduganiyevich. And there is no chance even to suggest whether Uzbekistan is expecting a new president, or will it repeat the “feat of Turkmenbashi? ...

Not just a madhouse, but a closed-type psychiatric clinic. Only the head physician himself should be the patient of ward number 6, where the Prosecutor, Napoleon, Harry Potter, etc. are sitting.
