Official turnout for the Tajikistan parliamentary elections was 87.7%. President Emomali Rahmon's People’s Democratic Party of Tajikistan won receiving 65.2% of the votes from his loyal underlings rewarding their leader since 1992 for his visionary rule and all the nice Russian troops he has brought into their country.http://www.rferl.org/content/tajik-elections-rahmon-party-victory/26877105.html
The leader of the Communist Party leader has dismissed the election as a farce, so he is probably going to dissapear soon.
For the first time since Tajikistan gained independence in1991the Communists and the only legal Islamist option the Islamic Renaissance Party (IRPT) failed to clear the 5% threshold. IRPT was a major player in Tajikistan's 1992-97 civil war, but relegalized after the peace agreement and has until now been allowed to stay in parliament. So two historic parties are out.
A senior international election observer said "an honest count could not be guaranteed" because of instances of ballot-box stuffing, multiple voting, and "disregard of counting procedures."
Despite this they do have an opposition:
The Agrarian Party, Economic Reform Party and Socialist Party all won seats, the latter gaining one of the 63 seats in the Majlisi Namoyandagon for the first time to act as the token leftists now that the Commies are out.
Unfortunantely the Democratic Party and the Social Democratic Party (the only really vocal critics of the government) just fell short. So sad, but one day these hotheads will grow up and learn how to moderate and be token
opposition and then who knows?
OSCE international observer mission: The parliamentary polls took place in a "restricted political space" and failed to provide a level playing field for candidates. Understatement of the year.
