Azerbaijan’s Central Election Commission (CEC) registered two more initiative groups – “Municipality” and “Civil society” – on Aug. 20 for their participation as campaign groups in the upcoming referendum.

Earlier, Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev signed an order to hold a referendum Sept. 26 for making amendments to the country’s constitution.

CEC Secretary Arifa Mukhtarova told reporters that “Municipality” campaign group has been created by municipalities, which expressed interest in campaigning for the referendum.

“Civil society” group has been created by Azerbaijan’s Trade Unions Confederation and civil society organizations.

Both groups previously completed a campaign on collection of signatures and submitted them to the CEC for registration to participate as campaign groups in the Sept. 26 referendum.

Earlier, the CEC registered an initiative group of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party.
