Azerbaijan, Baku, May 10 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
The Azerbaijani Electoral Code is not expected to be amended, Azerbaijani Parliamentary Office head
Safa Mirzayev said.
"Not much time is left before the parliamentary elections. Pre-election campaigns will soon start," Mirzayev told Trend.
"The Azerbaijani government has introduced up to 90 percent of the OSCE and Venice Commission recommendations for the Electoral Code," Legislation and Legal Expertise Department head of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Shahin Aliyev said earlier.
The OSCE and the Council of Europe Venice Commission submitted recommendations on the formation of electoral commissions on a parity basis, and the settlement of mechanisms for making complaints and appeals in connection with the violation of voting rights and other issues.
Additions and changes have been made to the Election Code 10 times since its adoption in 2003.
No discussions concerning the amendments are expected to be held with the commission, he added.
"Changes to the electoral laws may be made in connection with certain procedural issues," Mirzayev said. "For example, on complaint issues."
