PACE Monitoring Committee made decision to send post-election mission to Azerbaijan
Debates on the reports of the PACE co-rapporteurs for Azerbaijan Andreas Gross and Andres Herkel on the results of their observations at the parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan took place on 23 November at the sitting of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe in Paris along with discussions of the post-monitoring situation in Slovakia and Latvia, the chairman of the Party of Democratic Reforms (PDR), a member of the PACE Monitoring Committee Asim Mollazade told Trend.
Mollazde noted, that during the debates the PACE co-rapporteur Andreas Gross came out with the proposal of the post-election visit of the co-rapporteurs to Azerbaijan due to the fact, that the process of the violations investigation during the 6 November elections is coming to an end for the moment. The visit is aimed at studying the situation at the constituencies, where the voting results had been cancelled. In this regard, the Monitoring Committee took a decision to approve the proposal.
В"The visit of the co-rapporteurs will take place in early DecemberвЂќ, Mollazade noted, saying that the elections in Azerbaijan will be discussed again on 25 November in Bucharest, at the session of the PACE Permanent Commission. В"The Monitoring Committee has not voiced any special standpoint on the parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan. Discussions will be likely held on the results of the co-rapporteurs visit to the region at the sitting of the Monitoring Committee on 14-15 December, the PDR leader said in conclusion.
