Next week's special election

Last one for today...

I might have mentioned that Azerbaijan is a democratic society (well, yes, it's more democratic than Muslim) yet, on March 18th is a special Referendum Vote to eliminate term limits for their president. President Aliyeva, who became president after his father the former president passed away, is seeking to continue and likely pass the leadership on to his son.

I've been told there is no opposition to the referendum and it will likely pass. The country seems to adore Aliyeva and there are large billboard posters of him all over town and not just because of the coming vote.

Here's a look at him
