Azerbaijan strongman Aliyev wins fourth term

Aliyev said that Azerbaijan-SCO relations are based on common history and interests, noting that Azerbaijan considers the SCO as an organization which plays important role in the global area, and hailed its contribution to the establishment of stability around the world.

Azerbaijan's snap elections on 11 April 2018 ended predictably, with preliminary data showing incumbent Ilham Aliyev has taken the presidency once again. "People voted for stability, security and development".

In a message to the president-elect, the Kremlin said Putin "praised Ilham Aliyev's efforts aimed at strengthening friendly, good-neighbourly relations between Moscow and Baku".

The final turnout at the presidential election in Azerbaijan is 74.51%.

Monitors reported "widespread disregard for mandatory procedures, a lack of transparency, and numerous serious irregularities, including ballot box stuffing", in Wednesday's election, adding: "in the absence of pluralism, including in the media, the election lacked genuine freedom".

The elections were held in Azerbaijan yesterday.

Opposition parties in the tightly controlled Caucasus nation have said the elections are a sham and accused the authorities of preparing to rig the vote.

Aliyev was first elected in October 2003, two months before the death of his father, Heydar Aliyev, who ruled for 10 years.

Azerbaijan adopted fresh controversial constitutional amendments in 2016, extending the president's term in office from five to seven years.

The election that had been due in the autumn was moved up to April. He appointed his wife Mehriban first vice president, the second most powerful post after the president, in 2017.
