Chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Mevlut Cavusoglu said he hopes for free, fair and democratic elections in Azerbaijan.

The parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are scheduled for November 7, 2010. Previous parliamentary elections were held in November 2005. Parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are held by the majority system in 125 constituencies.
