Court to decide if re-election in Azerbaijan's region needed
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 23
By Elchin Mehdiyev - Trend:
So far it is early to talk about a repeated parliamentary election in the 90th Aghdash constituency, Azerbaijan's Central Election Commission (CEC) told Trend Nov. 23.
Azerbaijan held its parliamentary election Nov. 1.
The CEC said Azerbaijan's Constitutional Court will consider the issue of holding a re-election in the 90th Aghdash constituency, where voting results have been cancelled by the CEC while making a decision on the election results.
The Central Election Commission said that without a decision of the Constitutional Court it is too early to speak about a re-election.
On Nov. 17, the CEC, considering appeals from MP candidates, registered at the 90th Aghdash constituency, annulled the voting results in that constituency.
The Constitutional Court will hold a meeting Nov. 24 on checking up the documents submitted by the CEC and approving the parliamentary election results.
During the Nov. 1 election, the MP mandate in this constituency was won by Chingiz Asadullayev, who chairs the supervisory board of Azerigazbank.
