Expert: decision of the Central Election Commission is illegal
The demand of CEC to submit the original acts of electoral fraud is illegal, said the head of the Election Monitoring and Democratic Studies Center (EMDS), Anar Mammadov.
On 13 October, the CEC rejected the complaint of the presidential candidate Jamil Hasanli against violations during the elections on 9 October, under the pretext that copies, and not originals of acts were submitted to court. However, a statement on the complaints and the submitted facts should be considered.
The original acts could also be submitted during the investigation, but time should be given for this, Mammadov said.
At the same time, the law does not require the notarized copies of acts of violations and results protocols .
According to the expert , the election headquarters of Hasanli may submit the original acts and re-file the complaint until October 16 .
You can also file a complaint to the Court of Appeal against the decision of the Central Election Commission of the results of the voting which must be accepted before October 19. There will be time for this since the Constitutional Court should approve the results within 14 days after the election.
In any case, there are still legal means to appeal the decision of the electoral bodies, and be seriously prepared for it.
"In particular, all popular Internet video, photo and audio should be transferred to the disks, all acts and records of observers should be attached to the complaint. To do this, the election office of Hasanli can create a hot line and collect materials through it," said Mamedli. -06D—
