When the short-lived Transcaucasian Democratic Federative Republic was established on February 10, 1918, N. Yusifbeyli became its Minister of Education. On May 28, 1918, when Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR) was proclaimed, N. Yusifbeyli again held the cabinet post of Minister of Education in ADR government. From March 1919 till March 1920, he was the Prime Minister of Azerbaijan, in parallel, also holding the post of the Minister of Interior from March till December 1919.
