Baku, September 26, AZERTAC
Chairman of the Council of the Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, head of the CIS Inter-Parliamentary Assembly observation mission Ilyas Umakhanov has said Azerbaijan`s referendum on Constitutional amendments is a vote of confidence to the President of Azerbaijan, the country`s internal and foreign policy.
He also hailed “a very high” turnout in the referendum. “We have visited around 60 polling stations since the early hours of Monday. People have been coming to polling stations before they actually opened, and lined up in long queues to cast their votes. This attests to political maturity of the Azerbaijani society, demonstrates that they are aware of the importance of the issues put to a vote,” he told journalists.
