  • Observations: The party leader Felix Kulov has lost some credibility after the 2005 revolution for his perceived indifference to the political life. After serving as Prime Minister he was effectively side-lined by the Bakiev regime. In the mid-September 2011 the Ar Namys parliamentary party faction has decided to replace Kulov as its leader in the legislature. It has support from Russia’s ruling party Edinaya Rossiya (United Russia).
