Who will the CEC invite to observe the parliamentary elections?

Invitations to about 30 international organizations will be sent to monitor the early parliamentary elections on September 1, Chairman of the Central Election Commission (CEC) Mazahir Panahov said at today's meeting of the Central Election Commission (CEC). However, he did not specify specifically which organizations the invitations would be sent to.

At the early presidential elections on February 7, 2024, the non-invitation of the supervisory delegation of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe led to the suspension of the powers of the delegation of the Milli Majlis of Azerbaijan in this organization.

At the CEC meeting, Panahov warned that "observers should not be hindered during the elections." At today's meeting, the CEC approved the plenipotentiary representatives of the Republican Alternative, White Party and Civil Solidarity parties.

Panahov also instructed to clarify the voter lists and complete this process 25 days before the voting day. "If someone's names were not included in the lists for objective and subjective reasons, then all precinct election commissions should be instructed to draw up additional lists," Panahov said.

According to him, there have never been cases before when there would have been appeals due to the absence of a voter in the list, and not giving him the opportunity to vote. Panahov acknowledged the lack of equipment at polling stations in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. "The polling stations there will be provided with the necessary equipment," the head of the Central Election Commission assured.
