This Sunday it will once again be time for Parliamentary elections in Turkmenistan. Unlike, say, American elections, Turkmen candidates don't need to waste time with a platform, because their leader is all-wise and all-knowing, and their only job is to serve him and implement his ideas. The OSCE hopes to send in a team to determine whether they need to monitor the election, but they have been denied visas. Turnout is expected to be low, as many people don't even realize there's going to be an election.
