Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr.I.Alizadeh / MP Siyavush Novruzov, the deputy executive secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party, stated on 4 June that a Law on the Political Parties must be reconsidered before the next Parliamentary Elections.
"After adopting the Constitution and injecting changes and supplements in the Electoral Code of Azerbaijan many points of law do not correspond to the Law on the Political Parties and it is necessary to inject changes in the law," the MP noted.
According to Novruzov, the Law on Political Parties was submitted at the spring session of the Milli Majlis (Azerbaijani Parliament) for discussion.
Discussions on the Law are continuing.
"One of the changes envisages the financing of political parties by the State," Novruzov stressed.
The current Law on Political Parties was adopted in 1992.
The ruling Authority and opposition parties of Azerbaijan support the adoption of the new Law on Political Parties.
The New Azerbaijan Party was formed in Nakhchivan in 1992. For fourteen years the chairman of the party had been Heydar Aliyev, the former President of Azerbaijan. Presently, the President Ilham Aliyev is the head of the party.
