The third candidate, Rustam Inoyatov, is already seventy-two years old, and has kept his life much more private, receiving little media coverage during his rise to power. Inoyatov, as chief of the National Security Service, has been leading arguably the most powerful institution in Uzbekistan for over twenty years. Analysts suspect that, notwithstanding his current influence over politics in Uzbekistan, Inoyatov's age will make him less likely to vie for or secure the presidency. However, his position is still considered critical with regard to determining who will become the next president, even if he chooses not to attempt to fill such a role himself.

In the first scenario, Inoyatov becomes president after declaring a state of emergency and seizing power.
The fourth possibility is that Inoyatov, described as a "kingmaker," endorses Azimov to preserve the balance of political clans, leading to Azimov's assumption of power.

However, names being thrown about include: Shavkat Mirzoyev (Prime Minister), Rustam Azimov (Minister of Finance), Rustam Inoyatov (SNB), and even daughter Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva.

Current members of the inner circle include National Security Council (SNB) Chief Rustam Inoyatov (Tashkent clan - often referenced as Karimov's 'grey cardinal'), Finance Minister Rustam Azimov (Tashkent), and Prime Minister Shavkhat Mirzoyev (Samarkand).
Led by Inoyatov and the Tashkent clan, Gulnara has been completely removed from succession talks while her network and close allies have been arrested or significantly lost their political influence.
Known as the "hero of Andijan" for his ruthless suppression of protests in Andijan 2005, Gulyamov is now considered the third most powerful actor in Uzbekistan behind the President and Inoyatov. Where he fits in the question of succession and the emergence of a new power hierarchy, however, remains to be seen.
The Tillyaev family have alleged ties to the Tashkent clan, and allegedly, Chief of the National Security Service (SNB), Rustam Inoyatov. In the past this has reportedly worked to the Tillyaevs' benefit as Inoyatov and the SNB have allegedly provided political cover for the family's business ventures.
Although there are barriers surrounding Karimova-Tillyaeva's transition to the presidency, it is unwise to rule out such a scenario; especially given the connection between Inoyatov and the Tillyaev family.
Possibly the most obvious immediate successor is Prime Minister Mirzoyev - one of his greatest assets has been the support that he too has enjoyed from Inoyatov. According to established sources in Tashkent, Inoyatov has - at least previously - been of the opinion that Mirzoyev balances elite politics; and, Gulnara's fall from grace, and Azimov's alleged diminished influence, has merely strengthened his positioning.
There is little doubt that Inoyatov will be running these discussions, and has been mandated to ensure that whoever inherits the presidency must be able to balance clan interests and sustain a similar level of loyalty among political elites.

As potential successors to Karimov, the Survey lists Rustam Inoyatov, head of Uzbekistan's National Security Service; Gulnara Karimova, the President's eldest daughter; Shavkat Mirziyoyev, the long-standing prime minister; and Rustm Azimov, the deputy prime minister.

Although Karimova was long considered a frontrunner, she has forfeited her standing by charges of corruption and financial impropriety. She is also in deep enmity with Inoyatov.
