Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov.1 / Trend, H.Valiyev /
Polling stations in the capital, where the parliamentary elections will be held are equipped with reliable, uninterrupted telephone connection and Internet access, the Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry's Public Association "Baku Telephone Communications" told Trend today.
Similar works are also carried out at the regional level by the Aztelecom Production Association.
Web-cameras will be used to ensure transparency of the election process in 500 polling stations. Some 189 web-cameras have been installed in 29 constituencies of Baku, 34 in five consistencies in Sumgayit and Absheron Peninsula, 25 in seven constituencies in the Nakhcivan Autonomous Republic, the remaining in other regions of the Republic.
The voting process will be available in online mode, which will allow voters to have the ability to interactively monitor the results coming from polling stations.
Information from each polling station will be transferred to district election commissions, and then sent to the Election Center's data network.
The Elections State Automated Data System will be used to automate the voting process.
The software consists of two modules. The first provides data points for district election commissions and the second automates the workstation of the data center administrator.
The system's primary functions include reflecting the voting process, including protocols in the computer database, as well as adding the names of MPs and political parties into the computer, and summarizing the final protocols of the district election commissions.
The parliamentary elections are scheduled for Nov. 7.
