In conclusion, the Head of State wished the fraternal people of Azerbaijan peace and prosperity.

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has received a delegation led by chairman of the Executive Committee and Executive Secretary of the CIS, head of the CIS observation mission for the presidential election Sergey Lebedev.

The Central Election Commission says that voter turnout was 74.51 per cent. But on 5 February, a directive from Ilham Aliyev ordered the country hold snap elections on 11 April.

The polls also "lacked genuine competition", the global election and war monitor said, with opposition candidates refraining from challenging or criticising the incumbent. Other candidates refrained from directly challenging or criticizing the incumbent, and distinction was not made between his campaign and his official activities, the global observers concluded in a preliminary statement today.

First elected in October 2003, two months before the death of his father, Heydar Aliyev, who ruled for 10 years, Ilham Aliyev was re-elected in 2008 and 2013 - all votes that global observers said fell short of democratic standards.

But the OSCE said Thursday that its observers at the polls reported "widespread disregard for mandatory procedures, lack of transparency, and numerous serious irregularities".

This was the first presidential election in Azerbaijan since constitutional amendments in 2016 that further increased the powers of the president.

The election took place in conditions dominated by the ruling New Azerbaijan Party (YAP), which nominated the incumbent president as one of the eight candidates who took part.
