INITIATIVES ON CHANGES TO EC 2 PRIOR ELECTIONS ARE ATTEMPT TO BREAK ELECTIONS
The initiatives on changes to the Elections Code (EC) two months prior to the elections are nothing else than attempts for breaking the elections, while there is not necessity in it, Ali Hassanov, the head of the Public and Political Department at the PresidentвЂ™s Apparat, said, He was commenting on critical notes by Isa Gambar, the leader of Musavat Party, on the address of the authorities.
He noted that statements by representatives of the opposition target achieving a resonance enabling them to ground their loss in the parliamentary elections.
вЂќTaking the advantage of the participation of the representatives of the Council of Europe and international organizations in the event the opposition makes all possible to create вЂ�effect of electionsвЂ™, he underlined, adding that the critical notes on the governmentвЂ™s pre-election work were groundless.
вЂњThe first stage of elections is nearing to end and today the Central Election Commission (CEC) has not received special notes, but only claims on the registration of candidates,вЂќ Hassanov said. Call by the opposition will not raise any effect, he urged.
Touching the changes to the Elections Code (EC) of Azerbaijan, Hassanov noted that the issue was under the competence of the parliament, and unless the parliament considers it, then the parliamentary elections will be held on the base of the current legislation.
