Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 22 / Trend H.Valiyev /
The Azerbaijani election commissions will be provided with uninterrupted telephone service and Internet access during the parliamentary elections, Deputy Communications and IT Minister Iltimas Mammadov said on Friday speaking at the "Investment potential of the Azerbaijani regions: achievements and Prospects" scientific conference.
Mammadov said web-cameras will be used in a number of polling stations to ensure transparency of the electoral process. The voting process will be available in online mode, which will allow voters to interactively monitor the results coming from the polling stations.
Each polling station will send the information to constituencies and then it will be transferred to the information network center "Elections".
The State Automated System "Elections" created to automate the voting system in the Azerbaijani parliament will be used to automate the voting process.
The software consists of two modules. The first - for information points of district election commissions, the second - for the automation of the information center administrator's workstation. The main functions of the system are the reflection of the voting process, introduction of protocols in the computer database, entering names of MPs and political parties in the computer and summarizing protocols of district election commissions.
Parliamentary elections are scheduled for Nov. 7. The election campaign was officially launched on September 3. Previous legislative elections were held in November 2005. Parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are held by the majority system in 125 electoral constituencies.
