Head of Yasamal District Executive Authority Aziz Azizov briefed the president on the carried out work.

The final turnout at the presidential election in Azerbaijan is 74.51%. "He got 86.09 percent of votes", Mazahir Panahov, the Central Election Commission chairman told a news conference.

President Ilham Aliyev expressed gratitude for the attention and congratulations. Some opposition parties boycotted the election, citing a non-competitive environment, while others not participating said the early election date left them with insufficient time to do so meaningfully.

The authorities rejected the opposition's criticism, insisting the vote was free and fair.

"The amounts of oil are falling and the amounts of gas will be quite modest, so I expect to see some kind of rebalancing of the relationship between Azerbaijan and the West in the next few years", said Thomas de Waal, from Carnegie Europe.

Mr Aliyev has led the country since 2003, when he succeeded his father.

Aliyev said Azerbaijan is interested in strengthening ties with the SCO and participating in a number of projects implemented by the organization.

The ruling New Azerbaijan Party claimed Aliyev's victory two of hours after polls closed.

Since he won the last election in 2013, Azerbaijan's constitution has been amended to extend the presidential term from five to seven years. "The sides confirmed their mutual willingness to deepen the relations of strategic partnership, especially on the restoration of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of both countries", the press service of the Ukrainian president said on Thursday.

Global observers from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe were to release their assessment of the elections' conduct later on Thursday.
