"This applies not only to the heads of executive authority, but also all government officials. No-one can be above the law. Everyone is equal before the law," said President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev as he received in a video format Joshgun Jabrayilov due to his appointment as head of Nizami District Executive Authority, Elgin Habibullayev due to his appointment as head of Narimanov District Executive Authority, Baku, and Elkhan Ibrahimov due to his appointment as head of Kurdamir District Executive Authority, APA reports.

" The duties and responsibilities of a civil servant should motivate them to follow the principles I have mentioned. Otherwise, they will be punished, and our work confirms this. A high position is not a great privilege, but a great responsibility. Therefore, you should realize this responsibility and take steps in this direction. Proper selection of personnel in the field of personnel policy will greatly facilitate this work. Therefore, in selecting personnel, it is first of all necessary to take into account people’s capacity to work, their loyalty to statehood and to the state, and patriotism. Nepotism, kinship and any other principles should be completely eliminated. Personnel should be selected so that it can perform its duties with dignity. At the same time, as I said, patriotic people, people attached to the state and to the people should, of course, come to the fore. This must be taken into account when people are appointed to new positions," said the President.
