I understand the point you are trying to make, Ken. I don't know anything about Carlius's management style. Assuming that what you say is entirely correct, you have good reason to hope that his successor will do certain things differently.
But I would be careful about making analogies to Yasser Arafat. The late PLO leader presided over a state that tolerated and, at times, encouraged terrorism directed against innocent civilians. The many people who thought of Arafat as a murderer were not wrong. Carlius may have been a dictator, but for all of your allegations of micro-management, suppression of dissent, and conflicts of interest, you have not alleged that anything he did actually killed anyone.
I am sure you did not intend this, but by even mentioning Arafat in this context, you are either trivializing Arafat's evil or grossly exaggerating Carlius's, or maybe both. Neither is appropriate.
