ELECTION BLOCS DISSATISFIED WITH DIVISION OF FREE AIR TIME ADDRESS TO CEC
The blocs вЂ�FreedomвЂ™, вЂ�New PolicyвЂ™ and Azerbaijan Liberal Party addressed to the Central Election Committee (CEC) to redistribute free air time allotted by AzTV and Public TV, the вЂ�FreedomвЂ™ bloc told Trend.
The bloc with free air time can use only 4 minutes 6 times a week, but the authors of the address propose to make 12-minute speech twice a week. вЂњIn our opinion, 4 minutes is very short time to disclose platform. In other hand, during the election campaign air time is limited in relation to candidatesвЂ™ visits to the regions,вЂќ the address says.
The CEC noted that the issue might be put for discussion only at the CEC meeting. вЂњIf the proposals will be taken into consideration, we will have to cast lots anew and redistribute time.
However, the casting of lots was held in accordance with law. As to time shortage, authoritative representatives may deliver a speech, while candidates are in regionsвЂќ Azer Sariyev, the head of the press-service of the CEC, told Trend.
