вЂњ25 October PresidentвЂ™s decree must be highly appreciated,вЂќ Andreas Gross
вЂњI highly appreciates the last decree by Ilham ALiyev, the Azerbaijani President, and think that the document is the factor demonstrating the will of the Azerbaijani authorities to hold democratic elections,вЂќ Andreas Gross, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) co-rapporteur, said to a meeting with participation of journalists on Monday, Trend reports.
The MP voiced hope that the Azerbaijani authorities would be very cautious in the issues related to holding of peaceful actions and allow the opposition parties to organize mass gatherings. вЂњFreedom of assembly and expression of will are fundamental basis of democracy,вЂќ the PACE co-rapporteur said.
In conclusion, Gross noted that registered facts of violations during the monitoring of the elections proved the messages concerning non-performance of some items of the 25 October PresidentвЂ™s decree on urgent measures related to preparation and holding of the parliamentary elections.
