Kazakh Court Dismisses Opposition Lawsuits

Kazakhstan's Supreme Court dismissed on 2 September two election-related lawsuits filed by opposition figures, Interfax-Kazakhstan reported.

In one ruling, the court dismissed a lawsuit by the Communist Party of Kazakhstan and Democratic Choice of Kazakhstan's (DVK) election bloc to reverse a Central Election Commission decision to change the bloc's original name.

The bloc had wanted to call itself The Opposition Bloc of Abdildin and Zhaqiyanov, a reference to the parties' leaders.

The court cited a law forbidding the use of leaders' names in the names of political parties.

The court also threw out a lawsuit by DVK member Marzhan Aspandiyarova against Darigha Nazarbaeva, the daughter of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbaev and head of the pro-presidential Asar party.

The suit had charged that Asar began televised campaign activities before the official start of the election campaigning period.
