The European Parliament, OSCE PA, and OSCE/ODIHR refused to monitor 1st November elections in Azerbaijan. Besides, these international institutions made strong pressure on PACE to do the same. The sole objective of this unfair isolation is to establish negative image of Azerbaijan, to make pressure on our country on the excuse of human rights, to destabilize the country, and make us forget our occupied territories.

The
European Parliament, OSCE PA, and OSCE/ODIHR refused to monitor 1stNovember elections in Azerbaijan. Besides, these international institutions
made strong pressure on PACE to do the same. The sole objective of this unfair
isolation is to establish negative image of Azerbaijan, to make pressure on our
country on the excuse of human rights, to destabilize the country, and make us
forget our occupied territories.

 

At the
same time, both European Parliament and OSCE PA well realized that their
positive assessment of Presidential elections 2013 in Azerbaijan was a reality,
and Azerbaijan makes resolute steps towards democracy, but they again didn?t
want to see and to inform the world about the reality and to witness
democratic, transparent, and free elections in Azerbaijan. Therefore, they blackmailed
Azerbaijan through isolation and political pressure.

 

PACE
disrespected its decision on deploying the election observation mission to 1stNovember parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan for three times under these
pressures. The relevant decision adopted in PACE Bureau and approved during the
ordinary session was repeatedly put into discussion. Consequently, PACE EOM
consisting of 32 members from 5 political groups monitored 1stNovember elections and issued a statement. PACE EOM assessed the 1stNovember elections as follows:

The elections were held in accordance with the
Election Code of Azerbaijan, which provides a legal framework for the
democratic conduct of elections.

 

The Election Day was calm and peaceful across
the country. The voting process was observed to be adequate and generally in
line with international standards.

The observation mission therefore congratulates
the Azerbaijani people for their peaceful and orderly conduct during this
electoral process.

The preparation to the elections and the voting
processes were professionally and technically well organized.

Throughout the Election Day, the Mission did
not report any major or systemic violations of the Election Code.

In conclusion, the Mission states that despite
the mentioned shortcomings, the significant increase of voters? turnout and the
transparency of the voting and counting procedures demonstrate another step
forward taken by the Republic of Azerbaijan towards free, fair and democratic
elections and that the results of this vote express the will of the Azerbaijani
people.

 

This PACE assessment is
the victory of justice, and exposed the European Parliament, OSCE PA, and
OSCE/ODIHR and their crafty intentions.

 

Europe should after all
accept the Azerbaijani reality, end this injustice, give up political pressure,
and cooperate with Azerbaijan. And we’re always open to cooperation.
