Rides of Heads of State (Part 24)

152. Palau. I suspected that leaders in Oceania were constrained by budgets and may have to use their personal vehicles. I think that is the case here with Palau's president's Ford F150 pickup.

153. Greece. The geriatric but amiable president rides in a Merc S-class.

154. Honduras. El Presidente Alto rides in a big Suburban.

155. Tunisia. The great leader rides in the ubiquitous Merc S-class.

156. Vanuatu. After watching a 30 minute documentary on Vanuatu and the West Papuan independence movement, I discovered that the poor PM rides in a black Mitsubishi Galant.

157. Bangladesh. With the government in chaos, the true leader is Army Chief of Staff General Moeen Ahmed. He rides in a Mitsu Montero/Pajero. And according to El General, he does not condone torture and human rights groups are full of shit.
