Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend I.Alizade / The Chairman of Azerbaijan Parliament's Permanent Commission on Legal Policy and State Establishment, MP Ali Huseynov, said on the 18th of June that the Electoral Code of Azerbaijan is a complete document which does not require amendments. "Presently discussions take place between Azerbaijan and international organizations with regards to the formation of the election commissions. I think that it needs to form the election commissions from professionals on the base of payment," the Chairman of the Commission said.
According to Huseynov, the proposal to form election commissions with the equivalant participation of the political parties is absurd.
He stressed that he has no information about the end of the discussions between Azerbaijan and international organizations with regards to the improvement of the Electoral Code of Azerbaijan. "I do not attend the talks directly. The expert group of the Commission is involved in this issue," Huseynov said.
The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutes and Human Rights and the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe hold talks with the Government of Azerbaijan with regards to the improvement of the Electoral Code of Azerbaijan. Particularly the discussions are organized to cover the change of the format of the formation of the election commissions.
