Member of Parliament from Shemakha – First Year
I am proud of representing Shamakhi in parliament – a land of poets with ancient history, rich culture, fascinating nature, fertile soil, hard-working and wise people.
I speak on behalf of you in Baku. I am indebted to you for the privilege to speak loudly and clearly on your behalf. Consequently, as the parliamentarian from Shamakhi, I consider it my duty to familiarize you with my one-year performance in the Milli Maclis. My activity are evident and up to your judgment. You are the only criteria to assess my performance as a parliamentarian and your evaluation is decisive for me.
Over the year, I have been trying to be with you, get informed of and understand your problems, be conducive to improvement of peopleâ€™s welfare and play a role in improving the public service. I gained great experience from direct contacts with you. However, it is impossible to solve your problems and those of Shamakhi within a year as they have amassed for over many years.
Politics is the art of possibilities. During my election campaign, I promised you to do my utmost for the resolution of problems in public service and for the improvement of peopleâ€™s welfare in the 21st century. Most of you are aware that I did my best to solve them. What have been achieved is reflected in this book. However, Shamakhi is not the only issue to be dealt with by our beloved state â€“ the Republic of Azerbaijan. Unfortunately, indifference and carelessness of relevant bodies often prevented us from solving a number of your pressing problems. However, we should not lose our hopes and look forward to as life goes on and I am fully loyal to my goal of serving you.
The priority of parliamentarians in all developed countries is to serve their voters. I will also continue my activities in 2012 in order to work harder and be more effective for you. I am always with you.
With kindest regards,
MP Elxan Suleymanov of Shamakhi.
