вЂњDelay with the announcement of the results of exit poll, conducted by the US company PA Government Services in Azerbaijan on 6 November 2005, was linked with the will to clarify the results of the poll,вЂќ Jim White, Vice President of the company, told ATV, Trend reports.
вЂњIndeed, the results of inquiry were publicized not within 2 hours of completion of the poll, as it was announced earlier, but later. However, it was linked with the will of providing public awareness on the exact results of poll,вЂќ White said. Recalling the use of over 80,000 inquiry forms by PA Government Services in the poll, White noted it actually took too much.
In his turn the head of the Azerbaijani Representation of the USAID,James Gogin underlined that the key objective of exit poll was no to define the winners and the beaten. вЂњWe only tried to determine the leaders,вЂ™ Gogin underlined.
Final results of the inquiry, held by PA Government Services under the USAID, were publicized only on Monday morning (7 November)
PA Government Services is a famous consulting company involved in the implementation of numerous projects in the countries of Africa, Caucasus Afghanistan and Central Asia.
