Reasons for holding extraordinary presidential elections revealed. Aydin Mirzezadeh, the Head of the Department of Political Analysis and Forecasting of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) told AzVision.az that the appointment of the extraordinary presidential elections in Azerbaijan is related to the holding of several important public events in Azerbaijan this year at the same period.
“This year Azerbaijan will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Azerbaijani Parliament and the Armed Forces and the adoption of the state flag of Azerbaijan. In this regard, by holding high-level presidential elections and centenaries, Azerbaijani people should demonstrate the establishment of Azerbiajan Democratic Republic as a glorious page in Azerbaijan’s history”, he said.
Azerbaijani society will be able to hold both presidential elections and other events at a high level by bringing forward the date of a presidential election to April 11, said Azerbaijani MP.
“If we held the presidential elections in October in accordance with the constitutions, society would need to operate in parallel with a few directions. The current situation allows to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR) at a high level. At the same time, we will enter the 100th of our democracy with the leadership, new programs and new targets of our newly elected president”, Mirzezade added.
