BAKU -- Ilham Aliyev has been sworn in for his third term as Azerbaijan's president.
The inauguration ceremony took place on October 19 at the country's parliament.
According to official results, Aliyev was reelected with nearly 85 percent of the votes in the October 9 presidential poll. The candidate of the united opposition, Camil Hasanli, won around 5 percent.
Pan-European rights watchdog, OSCE condemned the poll as "seriously flawed," saying it was marred by a "restrictive media environment" and allegations of intimidation.
Baku, however, dismissed the criticism as "biased" and entirely based on information provided by the opposition.
Aliyev has held power since 2003, when he succeeded his father, longtime ruler Heydar Aliyev.
