"Today, the APPP and the Musavat party do not disclose their reports to the public."
This was stated by Siyavush Novruzov, chairman of the Parliament's Regional Affairs Committee, at the meeting of the Milli Majlis on June 23.
Fakt Yoxla examined whether Siyavush Novruzov's claim was true.
The Law on Political Parties states that political parties must submit the previous year's financial report to the Central Election Commission every year by April 1.
According to the information provided by the Central Election Commission, both the Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (APFP) and the Musavat Party have submitted their financial report for 2022 to the CEC.
The financial report of the Musavat Party shows that the total income of the party in 2022 was equal to 9,480 manats. 8,710 manats of these funds, i.e. 92%, were formed due to membership fees. Another 770 manats were donated to the party. In that year, the expenses of the party were equal to 9,410 manats, which were used for party maintenance and information provision. Thus, the party ended the year with a profit of 70 manats.
The 2022 financial report of the APFP shows that the party did not have any income in 2022. In that year, both income and expenses of the party were equal to zero.
It should be noted that both parties submitted their financial reports to the CEC in previous years, and since 2014, the reports submitted by the parties have been posted on the institution's website.
Fakt Yoxla concludes that MP Siyavush Novruzov's claim is False.
