MP: Number of Azerbaijani party’s regional organizations must be taken into account
Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 5 / Trend M. Aliyev /
"Great Creation" party proposes to consider the number of the parties' regional organizations in the law on "Political parties", which will be submitted to the Azerbaijani Parliament for consideration.
The requirement of its regional organizations in a half of the regions of the country or by 2 / 3 of the country must be made when the party is registered, chairman of the party, MP Fazil Mustafa told Trend today.
"This can be seen as a reasonable requirement," he said. "The most important thing for the parties is to choose the way that will facilitate their work, rather than a more difficult one."
The current law on "Political parties" was adopted in 1992. The new bill includes substantial changes. It is planned to finance the parties from the state budget. Moreover, it is planned to collect at least 5,000 signatures to establish a party.
The ruling "New Azerbaijan Party" proposed that a political party must collect signatures at least in 50 constituencies, while the number of signers in each constituency must be at least 100 people.
