Dear Presidents,

 

            I am writing to you in order to address the grave situation on-going in the Republic of Ukraine.

The eldest resident of Shamakhi, 113 years old Narinj mother has passed away.

Narinji mother, who was born in 1900, has been attending good and bad days in Avakhil village, where she was born, until the last days of her life. That is why she was not only an old mother of a single kin, but all the land. In 2010, during the parliamentary elections I had a chance to know her more closely. Within a short period we became like mother and son. I will preserve this love till the end of my life.

I condole to all the residents of Shamakhi and Avakhil village, and all the relatives with the death of Narinj mother. God bless her!

Elkhan Suleymanov, MP from Shamakhi

Elkhan Suleymanov: International organizations are alarmed that OSCE/ODIHR is alone on the stage

I’d like to express my opinion regarding the election process and its results. Thus, some forces still try to question the results of the Presidential elections in Azerbaijan by making constant attempts.

 

First of all, it should be noted that the elections were observed not only by Observation Missions of influential international organizations like the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), European Parliament (EP), but also by the Observation Mission of OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR). In total, over 50 thousand local observers and about 1400 international observers from almost 100 countries of different regions in the world observed these presidential elections. The international observers represented all regions of the world, including the USA and most European countries.
