Azerbaijan: Life as an OSCE Election Observer

The Continuing Adventures of Super Steve details life as an election observer for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) during the recent presidential election in Azerbaijan. The blog also questions whether an election boycotted by the main opposition parties can be considered democratic regardless of whether polling day itself was largely conducted without serious incidents. Nevertheless, it also says that the incumbent president now elected to a second term in office has enough popularity in the country thanks to the nature of politics in the region.
