Government, Political Parties

opposition leaders, nationalist party, freedom of religion, Resurrection, civil war

The Communist Party of Tajikistan and its allies, including the People’s Party of Tajikistan, dominate the government. In June 1993, during the civil war, the Supreme Court banned a number of opposition parties. The secular-nationalist Democratic Party of Tajikistan was allowed to reregister in 1996. Other opposition parties are the Islamic Rebirth Party; Lali Badakhshon, which advocates greater autonomy for the Gorno-Badakhshan region; and Rastokhez (Resurrection), a nationalist party advocating freedom of religion. Since 1997 opposition leaders have been allowed to participate in government, and in early 1998 some were appointed to official positions.
