Husband and wife relationship

The Husband And Wife Who Are President And Vice President Of This Country

This instance is most probably the first of its kind. For a husband and wife to be serving at the same time as President and Vice President of a country.

Azerbaijan’s sitting president is son of their previous president. President Ilham Aliyev took over as the country’s president after the death of his father in 2003 who had been the country’s president since 1993.

In 2017, he was criticised by the nation and the world after he appointed his wife, Vice President Mehriban Aliyeva, to serve with him as his Vice President.

His wife the Vice President is professionally a physician but was advised by him for her to join politics.

The are also rated as one of the richest couples in politics as they control over a country with some great minerals and the taxes in the country are quite high as well.

This is a very strange setting to have husband and wife serving in such high offices of a nation.
