Presidential Election, 2018

The 2018 Early Presidential Election in Azerbaijan took place on April 11, 2018. As was expected, the incumbent Ilham Aliyev won the elections without meeting much real opposition with majority of his political opponents either imprisoned or in exile. Accordingly, the main opposition political parties such as Musavat, Popular Front and ReAl, decrying the arbitrariness of the decision to initiate snap elections called for a boycott, the rigging of the elections being a foregone conclusion in their estimation.
