Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 18 / Trend M.Aliyev /
The Azerbaijani ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) refused from a free airtime provided for the pre-election campaign.
"Due to the fact that over 60 candidates from the Party have been registered, we get a right for free airtime. But the NAP refused from the provided free air time, since we hold equal struggle and want to show that our candidates outperform their competitors," NAP Deputy Executive Secretary Siyavush Novruzov told the party's official website on Monday.
Based on the electoral legislation of Azerbaijan, a free airtime maybe provided to the parties that have put forward more than 60 candidates.
