Ilham Dadashov, an unemployed university graduate, hopes public protests will derail efforts by the ruling elite of this former Soviet republic to use today's presidential balloting to transfer power from father to son. "There is little hope for the election results not to be falsified," predicted Dadashov, 22. "That's why demonstrations will be held. There will be huge demonstrations."
