BAKU, August 10 (Itar-Tass) - Azerbaijan’s Central Election Commission confirmed on Saturday the candidature of President Ilham Aliyev for participation in the presidential election due on October 9.
The country’s ruling Eni Azerbaijan Party had nominated its leader Aliyev the party’s candidate, the Commission’s Secretary Arifa Mukhtarova said.
“The documents, the commission has received, comply fully with the country’s election code, thus we have a legal base for confirming the deputy,” she said.
Azerbaijan’s legislation says a registered presidential candidate has to collect at least 40,000 signatures in support of his or her candidature. The Election Commission will check the lists with the signatures within a week.
Ilham Aliyev, 51, participates in the third election campaign. In 2003 and in 2008 he was elected the country’s president, where he was supported by 76.84 and 88.73 percent of the vote respectively.
