Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 18
Violation of Azerbaijan’s law was observed during the Sept. 18 rally of the Musavat party in Baku, says Siyavush Novruzov, deputy executive secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party.
Speaking to Trend Sept. 18, Novruzov said the Musavat rally did not comply with the Electoral Code and the Law on Freedom of Assembly, and there were violations of the law.
“Those who spoke at the rally touched upon the referendum, as well as violated the rights and freedoms of specific individuals. Very few people took part in the rally, and those participating were close to the rally’s organizers,” Novruzov said.
He added that the claims not reflecting the reality were voiced during the rally and there was an attempt to discredit the current development in Azerbaijan.
“Today everybody is witnessing that the country pursues a domestic and foreign policy that corresponds to the interests of the Azerbaijani people,” said Novruzov.
