Fifty one Azerbaijani political parties have submitted financial statements to the country’s Central Elections Commission (CEC) as they are required to do by law. This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of the Commission, Natiq Mammadov, quoted by the Azerbaijani News Agency, APA. Mammadov said that four parties have not given their annual financial report. Financial reporting by political parties is a new regulation that recently came into force in Azerbaijan.
On Thursday (13 August) the CEC organised a training seminar for political parties on how to present their annual financial reports. Representatives of the Ministry of Finance, the Audit Chamber and the Ministry of Justice also spoke at the seminar. The website of the CEC said that representatives of 37 political parties also attended the seminar.
