Do I understand correctly that the Head of Nation is entirely in command of the entire state apparatus with no checks or balances to his or her power, and has an indefinite term? Does that make anyone else uncomfortable?

AFAIK, that is the current situation, yes. No this doesn't make me feel uncomfortable. I don't like it, certainly, but not having been given any particular reason for distrust I am prepared to take things on face value and allow them to prove themselves.

There's elections planned for June, but there's nothing to say this cannot be indefinitely postponed or proclaimed illegal. June isn't that far away on the scale of things to wait and find out - and ultimately if things don't look like they are moving in a direction you would feel comfortable then at that point you should definitely be able to distance yourself and will of "lost nothing" but a little time - which would mostly of been filled with other things really, anyway.
