The third boycott - without legal consequences
Meanwhile, all opposition structures decided not to nominate a candidate for extraordinary presidential "elections" and boycott the coming elections. The public of the country has ambiguously apprehended this decision of the opposition and is looking for answers to some questions. Can the opposition's decision on the boycott be correct, will the boycott lead to political and legal results, what will be the attitude of influential international structures to the "elections", can the results of the elections be recognized?
Presidential elections with the Karabakh background
Two components could also be distinguished in the foreign policy component. The first is the attitude of the leading world players to the fact of the very transfer of presidential elections and the nomination of Aliyev for a fourth term.
The joy of Ali Hasanov is premature
Baku/15.02.18/Turan: The joy of Milli Mejlis MP Elkhan Suleymanov and presidential assistant, Ali Hasanov, because of lifting charges from the Italian MP, Luka Volonte, was premature. Thus, the allegations of money laundering were lifted, but charges of corruption allegations remain, and he is still under investigation, wrote on his page in Facebook an investigative journalist, a member of the international journalistic research network OCCRP, Khadija Ismayilova. Luka Volonte is a figurant of the international scandal "caviar diplomacy" - the investigation of the international NGO "European Stability Initiative". Volonte is accused of receiving 2.3 million euros from Azerbaijan, which were spent on bribing a number of PACE deputies in order to fail the report on political prisoners in Azerbaijan in January 2013. In 2016, the Milan prosecutor's office launched an investigation against Volonte, raising charges against him. However, the other day Milli Majlis deputy Elkhan Suleymanov, and then Ali Hasanov, assistant to the president, happily announced that all charges had been dropped from Volonte. Hasanov even threatened those who "slandered" Azerbaijan. However, Ismayilova wrote today, only charges of money laundering have been dropped from Volonte.
