Its president, Echibey had to flee the capital in June following an attempted coup d'état. Heidar Aliev, who had once served as the deputy premier of the Soviet Union became acting president and, as part of a deal with the coup leaders, gained appointment as the Chairman of the Supreme Council of Azerbaijan on June 15. The National Assembly elected him as President nine days later. Civil war was thus averted. http://pedia.nodeworks.com/H/HE/HEY/Heydar_Aliyev
