Unsurprisingly, voters in Azerbaijan ratified the proposed amendments to the Constitution in a referendum last week. The most internationally controversial reform was the one that abolished presidential term limits.
Voters were asked to decide on 29 amendments to the Constitution. All of the amendments were passed with a vote of around 90% in favour.
Azerbaijan has been classed as Not Free by Freedom House since 2003. It has had a Polity score of -7 since 1998.
