The Council of Europes (CE) vice chairman on human and legal rights, a member of the monitoring group, Edward Linthner is satisfied with the pre-electoral situation in the country. Linthner told in his interview to ANS TV channel, Trend reports.
He considered that re-run parliamentary elections is a good chance to show the ability to conduct democratic elections in the country.
I leave Azerbaijan with positive impressions. The CE recommendations to the government on the ways of improvement of the situation in the country were brought to life after the last parliamentary elections. I think that the Azerbaijani government realizes that re-run elections are a good chance to show the world that country is capable to hold truly democratic elections. Council of Europe is also very interested in upcoming elections and presented to government the pre-electoral plan, he concluded.
