Aliyev - Erdoğan: Authoritarianism in the time of democracy

Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan may have bungled the recent elections, where he failed to obtain the desired majority to cement his power, but it is always comforting to be amongst friends who know what you are going through. His visit to Azerbaijan then for the occasion of the European Games thus provided some relief as he met with fellow president and leader-in-perpetuity Ilham Aliyev to discuss cooperation in critical areas like ballot stuffing, media censorship and dissent suppression under the framework of pretend democracy.
