Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 1
Enough number of observers has arrived in Azerbaijan to observe the parliamentary election, says Ali Hasanov, Azerbaijani president's aide for public and political affairs.
He made the remarks November 1, the 'secki-2015.az' website reported.
Asked about the reasons for refusal of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) to send an observer mission to Azerbaijan, Hasanov said the ODIHR has for many years been taking a biased position on the elections held in the country.
"This time, the disagreements that emerged between the Azerbaijani government and the ODIHR over the election observation methodology, have led to that the organization didn't back down from its claims and refused to send an observer mission," said Hasanov.
