Failed to Include Azerbaijani Citizens, Armenians by Nationality, in List of Voters: Chairman of Central Election Commission (video)
Azerbaijan, Baku, 20 May /corr. Trend E.Babayev / It was a big failure as the names of Azerbaijani citizens, Armenians by nationality, were not included in the voters list. "Unfortunately the international organizations could not make an effective contribution to get the names of Azerbaijani citizens, Armenian by nationality, included in the list of voters," the Chairman of the Central Election Commission (CEC), Mazahir Panahov, briefed the media on 20 May.
Some 125 district election commissions have devised and submitted the list of voters to the Commission. The CEC will complete and confirm the voters at the end of May.
The number of citizens having voting right exceeds 4.6mln in Azerbaijan. More than 4,000 voters of Khankendi district election commission No 122 were added in the list of voters. The citizens of occupied Azerbaijan lands, including Nagorno-Karabakh, will not be able to realize their voting rights.
According to Panahov, no results were obtained from numerous appeals to the international organizations to assist in adding Azerbaijani citizens, Armenian by nationality, in the list of voters.
The Presidential elections in Azerbaijan will take place on 15 October.
