The early termination of the powers of the Milli Majlis (parliament) of Azerbaijan and the calling of snap parliamentary elections in the country will be announced at a special session of the Milli Majlis Friday, the parliamentary sources told Turan news agency, the latter reports.

This information is indirectly confirmed by today’s closed meeting in the ruling Yeni (New)

 Azerbaijan Party, which has an absolute majority of seats in parliament.

It is supposed that Yeni Azerbaijan will initiate the self-dissolution of the parliament, after which the Milli Majlis will petition to the president, with a request to call snap elections.

Earlier, the head of the Central Election Commission, Mazahir Panakhov, did not exclude holding of the parliamentary elections earlier than November, due to the upcoming COP29 climate summit in Azerbaijani capital Baku.
