Putting Business Ahead of Democracy?

Here in Stockholm, Turkmenistan’s exiled opposition leader has accused the west of putting business before democracy.

With elections coming in Turkmenistan later this month, Khudaiberdy Orazov tells Reuters that western countries talk about democracy but take no action.

The former head of the Turkmen Central Bank has been granted asylum in Sweden since the 1990’s.

Following the death of the autocratic ruler Saparmurat Niyazov in December, the acting president is running for president and has promised to continue his predecessor’s policies.

Turkmenistan has never held an election judged free and fair by foreign monitors.
