High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rafiq Nishonovich Nishonov (Cyrillic Uzbek: ; Russian: Rafik Nishanovich Nishanov) (born 1926) served as the twelfth First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Uzbek SSR. Nishonov held this position for 17 months, from 12 January 1988 to 23 June 1989. His replacement was Islom Karimov. He also was Chairman of the Soviet of Nationalities from 1989 to 1991. The Soviet of Nationalities (Russian: ), was one of the two chambers of the Supreme Soviet of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, elected on the basis of universal, equal and direct suffrage by secret ballot in accordance with the principles of Soviet democracy. As opposed to the Soviet of the Union, the Soviet of Nationalities was composed of the nationalities of the Soviet Union, which in turn followed administrative division rather than being a representation of ethnic groups.
