Constitution Day of the Republic of Azerbaijan (12/11)

Every year on November 12, Azerbaijan celebrates a public holiday - the Day of the Constitution of the Republic of Azerbaijan (Azerbaijan Azərbaycan Respublikasının Konstitusiya günü).

On this day in 1995, the Constitution of Azerbaijan, the basic law of an independent sovereign state, was adopted by a general popular referendum.

The people of Azerbaijan, continuing the centuries-old traditions of their statehood, declared their intention to defend the Republic of Azerbaijan, guarantee a democratic system, achieve the establishment of civil society and live in conditions of friendship, peace and security with other peoples.
