Elchibey, Abulfaz

▪ 2001
Abulfaz Kadyrgula ogly Aliyev 
      Azerbaijani historian and nationalist leader (b. June 7, 1938, Keleki, Nakhichevan A.S.S.R, U.S.S.R.—d. Aug. 22, 2000, Ankara, Turkey), was a leading anti-Soviet dissident and cofounder (1989) of the nationalist Azerbaijan Popular Front, before becoming the first democratically elected president of newly independent Azerbaijan in June 1992. He proved to be an ineffectual president, however, and after one year he was ousted in favour of former Azerbaijan Communist Party leader Heydar Aliyev. Elchibey, who had previously worked as an Arab philologist and a history professor, published more than 50 books on such subjects as philosophy, history, and religion.
