Five to watch in Uzbekistan succession

Daughters of Uzbek president Islam Karimov, Gulnara Karimova (L) who fell from grace in 2014 and Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva who told the BBC in 2013 she did not foresee a career in politicsCentral Asian Uzbekistan has been plunged into its greatest moment of uncertainty since the end of the Soviet Union by the death of veteran leader Islam Karimov, who dominated the country for 27 years. It appears that Karimov has left no designated successor to take over from him but analysts agree the next president looks certain to come from the small group of loyalists around the strongman. Viewed as a tough-guy enforcer, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, 58, appears to be the front-runner to take over long term after he was named head of the committee organising Karimov’s funeral.
