Azerbaijani governing party says reasons for non-acceptance of new law on education
Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 11 / Trend , corr. I.Alizade /The governing New Azerbaijan party (NAP) has declared the reasons for non-acceptance of new law on education. "Education Ministry, State Commission on Student Admission and standing Parliamentary Commission on Science and Education issues each have their own interest in the law on education. Each rector of university tries his interests to be provided in the new law," Siyavush Novruzov, the deputy executive secretary of NAP ns member of the standing Parliamentary Commission on Security and Defence issues, said to journalists on Dec.11.
The existing law on education in Azerbaijan was accepted in 1992. Since 1995 the preparation of new law began in the parliament. However, because of the differences between the parliament, ministries of education, finance, taxes, State Commission on Student Admission and universities, the law was not accepted. At the end of Dec 2007, the law was accepted by parliament in first reading (laws pass three readings in parliament).
Novruzov said that when the project, prepared by the commission of parliament, is submitted for consideration, each tries so that their proposals to be introduced into the law: "Each wants so that his position would be reflected in the law. All questions cannot be introduced into the law. Deputies will not vote for this law, it will not be accepted. These people must not forget, that the law starts not for their personal interests, it will act ten, hundreds years".
The official representative of NAP said that for the
solution of the problem either a new law must be prepared by serious and
independent specialists, or law must be presented to parliament not by
commission, but by President Ilham Aliyev.
We must accept one of the existing systems. Either the old system must remain, or we must turn to the new. We have baccalaureate, magistracy, and only post-graduate and doctoral study remain. There is not similar system in other countries. The non-acceptance of law creates problems", Novruzov added.
