вЂњThe Azerbaijani delegation has great authority at PACE. Therefore, the statements on non-confirmation of the mandate are baseless,вЂќ MP Aydin Mirzazade, the Azerbaijani delegate at PACE, told Trend.
The leaders of вЂ�AzadlygвЂ™ (Freedom) bloc stated that the Azerbaijani delegationвЂ™s mandate would not be confirmed at the winter session of the PACE due to falsification of the parliamentary elections.
Mirzazade said that there was no similar case over the all history of the organization. вЂњThe Azerbaijani delegation takes very active part in the work of the organization. The Council of Europe intends to expand the cooperation with our country. Thus, the issue of non-confirmation of the mandate may not be included into the agenda. It is possible that some candidate close to the Azerbaijani opposition will raise the issue, but event in this case the desire of the opposition will not be fulfilled,вЂќ Mirzazade underlined.
PACE will base on opinion of the Monitoring Committee, the Secretary General and the President of the organization. вЂњThey have a good opinion of Azerbaijan,вЂќ Mirzazade underlined.
