Oppositionists not Named in Election Lists Can Appeal to Commissions: Chairman of Azerbaijan CEC
Azerbaijan, Baku, 11 September / Trend News, corr. I.Alizade / The Central Election Commission of Azerbaijan (CEC) calls on the citizens, who have not an opportunity to vote in the permanent area of their registration, to appeal to the district and divisional election commission to be included in the election lists.
"Maybe the citizen does not live in the area of the election district where his name was included, but it does not mean that condition should not be created for the voting of those citizens," the CEC Chairman, Mazahir Panahov, briefed the media on 11 September.
The presidential elections will be held in Azerbaijan on 15 October. So far, the CEC has confirmed candidatures of the chairman of the New Azerbaijan Party Ilham Aliyev, the chairman of the Umid Party Igbal Agazade, the chairman of the Muasir Musavat Party Hafiz Hajiyev and the chairman of the Great Establishment Party Fazil Gazanfaroglu, Chairman of United Azerbaijan Popular Front Party, Gudrat Hasanguliyev.
Panahov said that appealing to the district election stations by 20 September, the citizens can get registered in the election lists in the area where they live currently. And three days prior to the voting, appealing to the divisional election commissions, the citizens can get into registration in the election station of the territory where they live currently.
"For this, the citizens do not need to appeal to the district election commissions, where they are in permanent registration. It is satisfactory to appeal to the district election commissions of the territory where they live currently. The district election commissions will send information on the citizens to each other," Panahov added.
Several opposition parties stated that their members have not been named in the election lists and it was mentioned that if the names of those electors are presented to the CEC, they will be included in the election lists.
Panahov said that the election posters should be hung in the dense places of citizens, railway and bus stations and other places available for people. "We should hang the posters in a way not damaging the historical buildings," he said.
