Masimov the Magnificent?

Eternal Remont would be remis to neglect Presedent Nazarbayev's selection of Karim Masimov as Kazakhstan's new prime minister.

While former Prime Minister Akhmetov goes about the task of printing up new business cards as Defense Minister, analysts note "there is little reason to believe that [Masimov] will introduce radical economic and political changes. First, no matter how hard a new head of the government may try to push forward economic and political reforms, he will never go beyond the boundaries set by the head of state." Second? Well he just isn't that popular.

Welcome to the party Masimov.
