Parliamentary elections were held in Azerbaijan on 1 November 2015.[1] The result was a victory for the ruling New Azerbaijan Party, which won 69 of the 125 seats in the National Assembly amidst an opposition boycott.

Electoral system[edit]

The 125 members of the National Assembly were elected in single-member constituencies using the first-past-the-post system.[2]

Campaign[edit]

The elections were boycotted by the major opposition parties, including Musavat, who accused the government of "massive violations".[3]

Results[edit]

The results in constituency 90 (Agdash) were annulled due to irregularities after an appeal by two candidates; independent candidate Chingiz Asadullayev had been in the lead.[4]
