Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan.13 / Trend , M.Aliyev /
A paragraph on the municipal elections will be included in a report on Azerbaijan, PACE Vice President Samad Seyidov said in an interview on the ruling party's Web site.
He said the municipal elections will not be discussed by PACE. However, the issue may be submitted for discussion to the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe.
Municipal elections were held Dec. 23 in Azerbaijan.
Seyidov said the elections were normal, objective and met international standards.
"Some forces try to tinge elections, but it is impossible. Azerbaijani voters know their rights well," he said.
Seyidov thinks the Azerbaijani parliamentary elections to be held in 2010 will also be successful.
