Azerbaijan parliament approved presidential term limit referendum

On December 26, 2008, the parliament of Azerbaijan, the Milli Majlis, voted 100-7 to conduct a referendum on whether to amend the constitution to remove presidential term limits. The constitution then allowed only two terms in office, which would bring the administration of President Ilham Aliyev to an end in 2013 after the expiration of his second five-year term. In the referendum, held in March 2009, voters approved the constitutional amendment, in addition to several others.
