Decision on applying daylight saving time still in force: Cabinet of Ministers
He noted that ANAS has expressed a scientific view on daylight savings.
“We’re not a decision-making body. We have only made a proposal. Other organizations have also been appealed to in this regard. As I said, we have already expressed our attitude towards the matter,” Aliguliyev added.
The Presidium of ANAS, based on time GMT +4, proposed to abolish this practice as it is causing a wide range of medical, psychological and social problems, if not to mention some difficulties in a time synchronization of computer systems.
In 1997, the Cabinet of Ministers passed a decision on application of summer and winter time in the country.
Azerbaijan will switch to daylight saving time by setting the clocks one hour forward at 04:00am in March 27.
