Baku – APA. “Human Rights House Network (HRHN) is biased and distorts reality, when it describes pre-election environment in Azerbaijan as troublesome”, said chief of the Presidential Administration Political Analysis and Information Provision Department Elnur Aslanov while commenting on the recent statement of the organization on the pre-election environment in Azerbaijan.

Aslanov noted that the pre-election situation was welcomed by presidential candidates confirmed by the Central Election Commission, various political parties and organizations: “Without taking into account all of them, Human Rights House Network issues false and subjective statements.”

The department chief blames the organization for fulfilling order: “The organization, which reported two months ago that the presidential elections will be rigged in Azerbaijan, not only expresses its lack of seriousness and professionalism, but also points out the fact that it is fulfilling a specific order. It is not accidental that a number of Armenian Diaspora organizations act as partner of Human Rights House. An Armenian called Saro Saroyan is in charge of financial affairs at the secretariat of the organization.”

Aslanov also mentioned the interview of Florian Irminger, head of HRHN Geneva Office, with the Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty: “He says everybody knows that who will be the next president. I would like to inform Irminger that this fact is not any imagination or illusion about the rigged elections, it is an indicator of the highest rating of President Ilham Aliyev in the society. Sociological polls also show that President Ilham Aliyev is supported by the vast majority of the population and his activities during the ten years were welcomed by voters. Of course, citizens want the continuation of President Ilham Aliyev’s activity for the dynamic development of the country.”

The PA official strongly condemned Human Rights House Network that they have never raised an issue regarding more than a million Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs, who have not been living in their lands for more than 20 years and were deprived of fundamental human rights as a result of the aggressive policy of Armenia.”

Aslanov said that as a democratic and legal state, Azerbaijan organizes elections basing on democratic principles and the rule of law by creating equal conditions for candidates: “The claims of HRHN over the threats to journalists and human rights activists in Azerbaijan and the interference of the government in unauthorized protest of the opposition in the 20th residential area are fully absurd and false. If the local Azerbaijani media outlets report Florian Irminger’s statements on lack of freedom of media in Azerbaijan, interference in freedom of speech and expression is out of question. I would like to note once again that the Azerbaijani government has created all conditions for holding transparent and fair elections, is taking necessary measures and the upcoming presidential elections will clearly proof this.”
