Ryspek Akmatbayev Redux

Quick update on the attempts of Ryspek Akmatbayev to be allowed to run for election (see previous post: Another day, Another protest). According to this report, the government have overturned their original decision and now he's going to be allowed to stand. I do like the last line of the article, which just about sums up the state of politics here: 'It was not clear why the court overturned the decision'. Ooh...fear? Intimidation? Bribery? Any other offers?
