Turkmenistan sets Feb. 11 date for election to replace late authoritarian leader

Turkmenistan's top legislative body said on Tuesday it had set Feb. 11 as the date for elections to replace longtime authoritarian leader Saparmurat Niyazov, who died last week.
The date was set by the country's People's Council, some 2,500 deputies who were either elected or appointed. The council also was to name the candidates for the election.
