Baku. Mahbube Gasimbeyli–APA. “Review of the term of chairman’s office and making right decision at the congress of Press Council are necessary issues”, Umud Mirzayev, member of the Press Council (PC) Governing Board and Chairman of International Eurasian Press Fund (IEPF) , told APA. He said demands for term of chairman’s office in the Council’s Charter didn’t meet the area of the chairman’s current activity and therefore the issue should be reviewed again. Mirzayev said any newly-established body needed in the action strategy. “It is difficult phase in the countries like Azerbaijan, which has not enough practice of regulation of the media-government and media-public community relations. The prior issue discussed at the congress should be clarifying of the chairman’s activity in the past period. Those, who are dissatisfied with this activity, will say NO to the amendments to the Charter about the prolongation of chairman’s office. I believe our writers will elect Aflatun Amashov again. We shouldn’t forget that Amashov was hardly working and led the Council from scratch to its present situation”. IEPF Chairman noted that he supported Aflatun Amashov to be elected as PC Chairman again.
