Baku, Azerbaijan, April 14 /Trend, A.Huseynbala/

A working group was established to prepare a bill on the status of ex-president in Azerbaijan, said the chairman of the parliamentary committee.

"Due to changes to the law, it became necessary to adopt such a law, and the working group was involved in the preparation of the bill," chairman of the committee on legal policy and state establishment of Azerbaijan Parliament, MP Ali Huseynov, told Trend.

The amendments and addition made to the Constitution of Azerbaijan during the referendum held March 18, 2009 also envisages status for ex-president. A new bill must be prepared and submitted to the Parliament.
According to Huseynov, firstly it needs to explore international practice to draft a bill.

"The working group prepares a bill, but the committee has not yet begun discussing the bill. I therefore find it difficult to express a concrete opinion on how the status of ex-president will be determined," said chairman of the committee.

"Personally, I have not specifically studied the use of such practices in the world. I know that the status of ex-president is determined by legislation. As in the world, we must also have the bill," Huseynov said.
