The ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) has launched a signature collection campaign in support of Ilham Aliyev’s candidacy in the upcoming presidential election, APA reports.
According to the Electoral Code, a political party must collect signatures of at least 40,000 voters in support of its presidential nominee. According to the law, at least 50 signatures must be collected in no less than 60 constituencies. However, the ruling party plans to collect the required number of signatures in each of 125 constituencies.
On February 8, the 6th Congress of the NAP passed a decision to put forward Ilham Aliyev’s candidacy for the presidential election scheduled for April 11.
The Central Election Commission approved Ilham Aliyev’s candidacy on February 14.
