Azerbaijan – End of term limits

RFE/RL reports that the parliament of Azerbaijan has voted 100 to 7 to hold a referendum on 18 March. The referendum will propose the abolition of presidential term limits. It is inconceivable that the referendum will fail.

On 24 December the Constitutional Court ruled that such a referendum was not unconstitutional. This decision effectively eliminated the last obstacle to the end of presidential term limits.
