Cekuta: US election day very exciting for Americans
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 9
By Anakhanum Hidayatova – Trend:
US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta told reporters in Baku Nov. 9 that he cannot comment on the future US election results, adding that the country will watch the election live.
It is obviously a very exiting day for the Americans, Cekuta noted.
The US election is really a conversation within the country about the country’s future, he said.
Democracy is not about election only, it is about rule of law and principles, the US ambassador added.
Democracy is about people’s ability to say what they say and leaders’ ability to hear them, he noted.
On Tuesday, Nov. 8, the US citizens have gone to the polls to cast their votes for the 45th president of the US.
Americans are choosing from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, as well as third party and independent presidential candidates, including Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson, Green Party nominee Jill Stein, and Independent candidate Evan McMullin.
