Azerbaijan Holds Parlimentary Elections

Voting concluded in Azerbaijan's general election, with the ruling party expected to retain power. Opposition leaders said that many candidates were prevented from registering and that the results had been pre-determined. The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) sent more than 400 monitors to the elections. The OSCE reported having received credible reports of voter intimidation; opposition candidates, it said, had, in some cases, been disqualified for no reason.
