No Personality Cult for Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov

THANK GOD! Can you imagine if he had made January, Gerbangulary?

From RFE/RL: Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov has abolished the power of the country's president to rename institutions and geographic locations and redraw administrative borders. State media report that only parliament will be able to do so from now on.

Dude, whatever, the parliament is the same great legislative body that "unanimously" rejected Turkmenbashi's calls for national elections. I'm sure they'll find time somewhere in their busy schedules to rename stuff in Gurbanguly's honor.
