Parliamentary elections to the National Assembly of Azerbaijan were held in Azerbaijan on 12 November 1995, with a second round on 26 November. However, the results were declared invalid due to fraud in 15 constituencies, with fresh elections held on 4 February 1996.[1] The result was a victory for the New Azerbaijan Party, which won 59 of the 125 seats. Voter turnout was 86.1% for the proportional representation part of the elections.
