    Opposition activists in Kazakhstan are calling for a boycott of Sunday's presidential elections.

    President Nursultan Nazarbayev called for early polls after rejecting a planned referendum on limiting his term in office.

    As Robin Forestier-Walker reports from Almaty, the man who has run the country for 20 years looks certain to win.
