Nurlan Tšnirbergen

Nurlan Tšnirbergen Нүрлан Тәнирбєргєн, also known as Yelbasə Елбашь, is the 3rd leader of Eastern Tatarstan. He is known for increasing the funding for scientific research, public education, healthcare and defence forces, and for enacting somewhat revolutionary laws regulating civil rights.

Early life and career:
He was born on 14th of November 1965 in the town of Uy Karatalda Үй Караталда near the lake Balkhash. His father, Aydan Tšnirbergen Айдан Тәнирбєргєн, worked as a salesman for a local custom furniture factory, and his mother, Raushan Sagdivan Tšnirbergen Раүщан Шагдиван Тәнирбєргєн, worked at the town's committee.
Nurlan attended the primary school in Uy Karatalda. After 9 years he went to a technical high school in Balkhashkala Балхащкала, followed by the National university of Azamat Aydin in Azattik, where he met his later wife Keshen Nazarbayev Tšnirbergen Кєщєн Назарбаев Тәнирбєргєн. At the age of 24 he became working for the ETA company in Azattik.

Political career:
Unfulfilled with his job at ETA he ceased the opportunity and became a mayor of Azattik in 1991. He became very popular amongst the people, which later helped him during the elections to become a leader. He was elected by 95,2% of voters on 20th of May 1995, 3 days after the death of his predecessor Zhafaras Tushran Жафараш Түщран.
In the year 2000 he imbedded fetal rights into the Eastern Tatar constitution. One of the biggest changes he made was a major loosening of the gun control laws. He explained the cancellation of the gun control policy by saying that "Eastern Tatar secret service, police forces and legislature are advanced enough to make it possible for regular gun ownership by civilians to have no effect on our country's security and crime rate. If everything allows for an extension of individual's rights without oppressing anybody else then there is no reason why we shouldn't do that."
According to his vision of all citizens being fully functional and equal members of society he increased funding for developing cures for various mental disorders. He also enacted so called Prison reform which lead to full establishment of rehabilitation for criminals. Following that he most recently took measures to prevent any torture from ever be conducted upon criminals and captured soldiers. Originally this law should have been applied also to war criminals and to the enemies of the people, but this feature was soon dropped after a major disagreement of the public.
