Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 1 / Trend T. Hajiyev /
The Parliament-2010 election monitoring coalition will conduct monitoring in 80 constituencies during the Azerbaijani parliamentary elections on Nov. 7, the head of the coalition's analytical group, Ibrahim Aliyev, said during a training organized for observers in Sumgayit.
"We have about 3,400 observers in the constituencies," he said. "Today, we will meet with the observers in Sumgayit constituencies. We will try to better prepare observers for the elections."
The parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are scheduled for Nov. 7. The previous elections were held in November 2005. The elections are held by the majority system in 125 constituencies.
Aliyev said all of the observers participating in the monitoring are independent and do not represent any party.
"Their main mission is to give objective information about the elections," he said. "Our observers represent the interests of the Azerbaijani people."
The observers were provided with information about the role, place and form of monitoring.
Speaking at a Parliament-2010 event, Aydin Karimov, a representative of the coalition, said that holding democratic elections will enhance Azerbaijan's role and influence on the international arena and strengthen its position in international relations. He underscored that Parliament-2010 intends to demonstrate independent and impartial results in the observation mission.
