Commission headed by the President Haydar Aliyev who is an architect of the Azerbaijani statehood prepared the Constitution of the independent Republic of Azerbaijan, which was adopted on November 12, 1995 through referendum and the first parliament was elected on the basis of democratic principles. The Constitution and the first Parliament demonstrated the beginning of the development and progress stage in the political history of our Republic. Milli Mejlis being a branch of the state power implements the legislative powers set forth by the Constitution, created and improved the legal base of the giant transformation processes, political and economic reforms.
I think this is the Parliament building, but am not entirely sure. In any case, it is an interesting-looking structure. On either side it is flanked by two enormous ex-Intourist hotels, the Aspheron and the Azerbaijan. The best view of this part of town is from the Sahil cafe at the end of a pier jutting out into the Caspian Sea...just be warned about the occasional smell coming from the oily water!!
