Who Is Gurbanguly Berdimuhammedov?

You thought you were doing well when you had learned how to pronounce the name of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Well, you will now have to learn to pronounce an even more challenging name, the new acting President of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov. (That is pronounced Gur - ban - gooly -- Ber - dee - muk - hammed - off). Berdimukhammedov steps in to replace the recently deceased former Turkmenistani dictator Saparmurat Niyazov.

Okay political bloggers everywhere, let's try that name one more time together, Gurbanguly Berdimukhammedov.
