BAKU, October 28. /TASS/. Media outlets from CIS countries are more neutral in their coverage of the forthcoming elections to Azerbaijan’s parliament, Milli Majlis, to be held on November 1, head of the Vybory (Elections) media center Vugar Khalilov said on Wednesday.
Western media are trying to "put pressure on Azerbaijan, but this will, of course, be in vain, and they will not be able to affect the elections," he said. "Media from CIS countries provide a more neutral coverage of the forthcoming elections in Azerbaijan and actually exert no information influence on the pre-election situation in Azerbaijan," Khalilov noted.
"The Elections center has been operating since October 20. According to its status, it is an independent media center with its own website available in both the English and Azerbaijani languages. We collect comments, all news items related to the forthcoming November 1 elections in Azerbaijan," he said.
"The center employs about 20 journalists, they are representatives of local media media outlets," Khalilov added. "A special feature of our center is that we are not a news aggregator, we prepare news bulletins."
