One of the main criticisms of the elections in Uzbekistan from observers at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the main watchdog in the region, is the lack of competition -- the tendency observed in all Central Asia countries.

Islam Karimov, the incumbent president of Uzbekistan, has been in charge since Soviet times and is one of the longest serving leaders in the world and reports are abound that his candidacy is contrary to the Constitution of Uzbekistan.

In the February and March reports, the Supreme Court, Prosecutor Generals Office and the Central Election Committee stated that th grounds were contrary to the Presidential nomination, despite it not being recorded in any official documents.

The elections will be held on 29 March.
