Report informs, First Deputy Chairman of Milli Majlis (Azerbaijani Parliament) Ziyafat Asgarov said at Baku meeting of chairmen of constituency election commissions.
Z.Asgarov made a speech on the topic of 'Constitutional grounds of the right to participate in the referendum and legislative mechanisms for its implementation'. He stated that constitution must meet requirements of a legal state: 'No country can say that it is a completely legal state. Heydar Aliyev used to say that democracy has a beginning, but no end. We try to meet the principles of a legal state in stages through these changes. Referendum is such a legal phenomenon that people participates as a whole. It reflects will of people. Each Referendum Act is an indicator of society's development. If referendum is held, it means there is need for it'.
