Less than 100 members of the Communist Party and the self-styled "workers’ movement of Kazakhstan" — under their respective leaders Serikbolsyn Abdildin and Madel Ismailov — held a rally in Almaty to honor the Bolshevik anniversary and to endorse the presidential aspirations of Azamat movement leader Murat Auezov, who has recently called for elections.
