Parliament elections...

There are parliament elections on the 6th of November. Everyone's goal (I guess except for the government) is to have democratic elections. Thousands of dollars go on election education and rights of voters. There are tens of NGOs that have elections education in their programmes (well also because the donors right now give grants for these projects).

The political scene in Azerbaijan (which is claimed to be democratic) devides pretty much only into two parts... those pro-governmental and those in opposition. There have been two meetings/ demonstrations organized by the opposition already this month, both ended up with the police running into the people and beating them up. So much for democracy.
