  1. This seems like a good suggestion. We have words for related concepts, like {woQ} ‘political power’, {qum} ‘government/to govern’. I’ve seen government employees referred to as {qum beq}, but what’s absent in our semantic space seems to be the notion of a political career(ist).

    Someone who exerts undue influence, according to KGT, is a {moHwI’}.
