Eldar Namazov not to take part in presidential elections in Azerbaijan

09 August 2008 [09:00] - TODAY.AZ
Head of the Public Forum "For Azerbaijan" Eldar Namazov rejected participation in the presidential elections, he said personally to Day.Az.
According to Radio Liberty, he motivated his decision by the absence of conditions for democratic elections in the country. Moreover, the hopes of the oppositionist for the parallel calculation of votes, which is important for ensuring transparent elections, also did not come true.

The officials annulled registration of the Election Monitoring Center, which was to hold the parallel calculation of votes. Namazov's decision was also influenced by the announcements about boycott of elections by the Azadlyg bloc, Musavat party and other opposition structures.

According to Namazov, he did not want to create the "appearance of alternative of elections" by his participation.
