Becoming President

A few months later, his father, the then current president of Azerbaijan, Ilham's father, stepped down due to ill health, and appointed his son as his replacement. Ilham Aliyev went on to win the 2003 election, amid widespread protest and allegations of voter fraud. His track record as a president has been widely frowned upon, and Azerbaijan is considered to have one of the most flawed "democratic" governments in the world.

Salary and Family Wealth

Ilham Aliyev's official Presidential salary is just $230,000 per year but thanks to the tight grip he holds on Azerbaijan's oil resources his family has prospered enormously. Ilham's son reportedly owns nine luxury mansions in Dubai worth $45 million. His daughters reportedly own an additional $30 million worth of Dubai real estate. According to Azerbaijan law, public officials can not own private businesses but that law does not apply to their children and spouses. Ilham's daughter Arzu, a television personality and model, reportedly owns millions of dollars worth of company shares and other assets such as Silk Way Bank and Sw Holding. SW Holding owns dozens of companies including the state airline and the state's official contractor.
