Call Mr. President to dismiss the governor of Ismayilli, Azerbaijan
To: President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Mr. Ilham Aliyev
Dear Mr. President:
A car accident involving the owner of a motel that allegedly operates as a brother sparked protests by thousands in the town of Ismayilli on January 23 and 24, 2013. Complaints about the brothel were repeatedly ignored by officials and the car accident was the final straw.
The protesters complain about low wages, unemployment, and socio-economic disparities. Their main demand is the resignation of Nizami Alakbarov, who has served as the governor of Ismayilli since 2006. His administration is marked with bureaucratic incompetence and unresponsiveness to issues of public concern, which has fed discontent of the local residents. Due to his poor record as governor, Mr. Alakbarov should be dismissed from governorship of Ismayilli.
Mr. President, we urge you to dimiss Mr. Alakbarov.
