"until Asgardia adopts a Constitution and elects its authorities."
Okay. But where's the guarantee that it will do so? Where's the deadline? This decree practically grants Ashurbeyli power indefinitely. It should be extended by, for example, "but only for a maximum length of 24 months". That way even if there's no constitution and authorities by that time, we'd have to elect a new head of nation. Or him again for another 2 years, the who is not important at this point, the important part is that it shouldn't be indefinite. If you grant powers but don't limit them or make them expire in time, you're advocating totalitarianism, not democracy.

Please have you not read the Government statement on this site say:
is a nation of free thinkers representing humanitarian
values and supporting the intellectual and ethical
development of all people.
ASGARDIA is governed by a Council of 12 Ministers.
Acting Ministers are appointed by the Founding Father
for a limited period until the first elections,
which are planned for June 2017.
Just click on the Government and read. Therefore it means election for our leaders will be held in June 2017 and after that he will not have power again. He will only be remembered as a founding father.
