Country’s President Names His Wife His VP
As they saying goes, “Happy wife, happy life!”
That’s what one husband is sticking to as he just named his wife the Vice President of the country he’s running. President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijani, a former Soviet state, apparently works well with his wife at home and in the office.
Of course the opposition leaders are complaining the move throws the country back into the medieval times. We know what that feels like.
Aliyev’s wife is the first VP of Azerbaijan, but that position didn’t exist until he created the position for his other half. The VP referendum vote passed with 90% of the vote, but did they know their new VP was the missus.
It seems the couple have been watching too much House of Cards.
