Rahmon Nabiyev (Tajik: Раҳмон Набиев; alternative spelling Rakhmon Nabiev; October 5, 1930 – April 11, 1993) served as the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Tajikistan and twice as the President of Tajikistan. He partly instigated the civil war. Rising out of the regional nomenklatura, Nabiyev ascended to power in 1982 as First Secretary of the Communist Party of Tajikistan. In 1985 he was ousted in a corruption scandal. After Tajik leaders declared the independence of the Republic of Tajikistan in September 1991, Nabiyev orchestrated his way back into power on September 23, only to step down on October 6 as pressure mounted for him to vacate the office during the campaign for the presidential elections. Nabiyev won the elections and on December 2, 1991 he became the first elected President of Tajikistan. Disputes concerning the election led to demonstrations by the opposition, becoming an all-civil war in May 1992. As fighting escalated, Nabiyev's own pro-government militias staged a coup d'état in September 1992. He resigned office from the safety of his home province of Leninabad. By December 1992 the Kulyab province's former apparatchik turned paramilitary-leader, Emomali Rahmonov, was in power. Rahmon Nabiev died on April 11, officially of a heart attack. Under another version, he shot himself.
