BAKU, October 10 (Itar-Tass) - Incumbent President Ilkham Aliyev said Azerbaijan would successfully develop democracy.
Aliyev has thanked the Azerbaijani people for its confidence at the presidential elections. “I’m grateful to my people who had the confidence in me by electing president. I’ll serve my people further and protect the interests of the Azerbaijani state,” he said.
In his televised address Aliyev named the presidential elections in Azerbaijan as “the triumph of democracy”. “Azerbaijan has all freedoms and it will further develop democracy,” Aliyev said.
Free and transparent elections are a regular serious step towards democracy, he said, adding, “The Azerbaijani people gave me a high assessment.”
“Azerbaijan is a strong state, which pursues an independent policy,” Aliyev said.
Commenting on the future, Aliyev said Azerbaijan would move forward in all directions - in the economy, social, energy and foreign policies.
The efforts would be exerted to fight corruption, he said, adding that concrete programmes would be worked out to create new jobs and reduce poverty and unemployment.
“We’ll build stronger Azerbaijan, which will be more powerful where every citizen feels well and lives in peace and calm,” he said.
