Azerbaijani President's Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov has commented on the information spread on social networks about his phone conversation with presidential candidate Hafiz Hajiyev.
Hasanov told APA that in recent days, some negatively-reputed sites and Facebook users have been making groundless and speculative allegations about his phone conversation with presidential candidate Hafiz Hajiyev.
"I would like to state that after watching the third TV debate of presidential candidates on Public Television on March 21, I phoned Hafiz Hajiyev at noon on March 22. I reminded him that in the beginning of the debate, the moderator asks the candidates to stay on topic while making their speech, stressing the importance of compliance with the Electoral Code. In this sense, it is not appropriate to purposefully speak highly of me and other officials and to criticize other state officials. Such cases are disapproved of by the public. I asked him not to confuse the public with his subjective opinions. Besides, I did not discuss anything with Hafiz Hajiyev,” the presidential assistant added.
