"So the war has ended. We have achieved what we wanted. A period of creation is now about to begin now. We will talk about that today. But before we do that, I would like to talk about other events that took place in 2020," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at meeting in a video format on the results of 2020, APA reports.
"Parliamentary elections were held in our country in February 2020. The parliamentary elections were another serious step towards democracy. Parliament leaders were renewed, new people came to the leadership. For the first time, a representative of an opposition party was elected deputy speaker of the parliament. At the same time, for the first time, representatives of the opposition were elected chairmen and deputy chairmen of parliamentary committees. This is a manifestation of a new political culture. This is a serious step towards cooperation between all political forces. Of course, this is very important for the democratic development of our country. We have a multi-party parliament, and this should be viewed as a very important step in strengthening our political system," noted the head of state.
