Blast from the Past: 2 Dead Leaders, 2 Lame Ducks and 1 General

To continue with the nostalgia theme, I present an article from the NYT (November 14, 1981) covering the presedential elections. I suggest you read till the end, presented below. It has a lot to say to the discerning reader.

For those, like myself, who grew into political maturity a long time after these events: Justice Sattar won that election and became president. His "presidency" lasted from November 20th, 1981 to March 24th, 1982.

Plus ça change...
