Personal details

Artur Tahir oğlu Rasizada (Azerbaijani: Artur Tahir oğlu Rəsizadə), often spelled as Artur Rasizade[1] (born 26 February 1935), is the Prime Minister of Azerbaijan. Rasizada was a long-time Communist Party member during the Azerbaijan SSR period. He was Prime Minister from July 20, 1996 until August 4, 2003, when he resigned, ostensibly due to health reasons, enabling President Heydar Aliyev's son Ilham Aliyev to assume the office. Rasizada continued to act as Prime Minister for Ilham Aliyev, however, and he formally returned to the post on November 4, after Ilham Aliyev was elected as president.

Awards

Rasizade was awarded with Istiglal Order for his contributions to economic development of Azerbaijan by President of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev on February 23, 2005.[2]
