Ruling party: OSCE/ODIHR initial report disrespects Azerbajani people
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 10 / Trend, I. Isabalayeva /
Azerbaijan's ruling party considers a report of the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) partial and biased. This report is being regarded as disrespectful to the Azerbaijani people's will, Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary of New Azerbaijan Party Ali Ahmadov said on Thursday, the website of the party reported.
According to him, it is regrettable that the OSCE/ODIHR initial report on the presidential elections in Azerbaijan, held on Oct. 9, is unfair.
"They probably prefer to assess the electoral process on the basis of their reasons, rather than people's expression of will," he said.
According to him, the Azerbaijani people expressed their political will at the presidential election.
"All conditions were created for people to express their will," he added. "The elections were transparent and fair. Ilham Aliyev received most of the votes. I think this is completely fair. People voted for the conducted work and further success."
The Azerbaijani presidential election was held on October 9. According to the results announced by the Azerbaijani CEC after processing of ballots from 99.53 percent of polling stations, President Ilham Aliyev gathered 3,118,287 votes (84.59 percent).
