Discrepancy in Musavat Party Youth Organization
Azerbaijan, Baku, 9 January / Trend corr. J.Babayeva / Discrepancies occurred amongst the youth organization of the Musavat opposition party due to the legitimacy of the structure.
The conference of the youth organization of the party was held on 23 December. During the conference Tural Abbasli was elected as chairman of the party. Prior to that the party was chaired by Elnur Mammadli, an active member of the youth organization, who had taken on the post for nine months.
After the election of the new chairman, Mammadli appealed to the Central Control-Revision Centre (CCRC) of Musavat and accused Abbasli of acting illegally. Mammadli reported to Trend that the election where Abbasli was elected as chairman of the party did not meet the Charter of the party. He wishes to call the next conference from the members of the youth organization of Musavat and to elect a new chairman. Mammadli is confident that he may be elected to the post of chairman. CCRC will respond to Mammadli within a month.
Commenting on Mammadli's statements, Abbasli said to Trend that the full governing power of the party belongs only to him. "I was elected the chairman of the party at the conference which was attended by officials of Musavat," Abbasli noted.
The protocol of the conference held on 23 December, where Abbasli was elected on the chairmanship post, will be considered at the meeting of the Supreme Council of Musavat on 2 January.
