I do not have grounds to doubt in the conclusion by the head of PACE Observation mission on results of re-run parliamentary elections held on 13 May in Azerbaijan in 10 constituencies, Andreas Herkel, co-rapporteur of the PACE Monitoring Committee, told Trend in an exclusive interview.

Herkel intends to arrive in Baku on 25 May together with Andreas Gross, a PACE co-rapporteur, to study the state of work in different issues, including the re-run parliamentary elections. He is scheduled to hold meetings with the government officials, representatives of the opposition, law-defense organizations, local observers, as well as inmates.

Results of the visit will be publicized in PACE summer session late this May.

After the re-run elections Leo Platvoed stated in Baku the progress in polling after the re-run parliamentary elections. He appreciated the exact compiling of voter lists. We fixed only few cases of non-inclusion of voters in the lists, which was timely resolved in the legal order, Platvoed stressed.
