On April 11, 2018 a criminal offense — forcible seizure of power in Azerbaijan — was committed in front of the whole world.
Today, on April 17, 2018, despite a complaint to the Prosecutor General’s Office and two lawsuits to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the court approved the election of Ilham Aliyev, officially recognized by the French court as dictator, the president of Azerbaijan for a new term.
Both citizens of the Azerbaijan Republic and tens of millions of Azerbaijanis of the world are victims of this crime, in which the Constitutional Court became an accomplice.
The inaction of the Constitutional Court with regard to complaints of violation of the rule of law in the Republic of Azerbaijan, coupled with the inactivity of other judicial bodies and state organizations, which for many years refused to rule on cases unsuitable for the government, gives grounds to recognize the Republic of Azerbaijan as a failed state.
In the current situation, I announce the establishment of the Azerbaijani government in exile. The new structure will operate under my leadership and under the aegis of the «Party of Love» (Sevgi Partiyasi) in Jerusalem. The program of our actions will be announced soon.
