Azerbaijan, Baku, 16 February / corr. Trend S. Ilhamgizi/ Though opposition party of Azerbaijani Democratic Party (DPA) nominated its candidate for the presidency, it can boycott elections if its outcome is falsified. Gurman Mammadov, the member of the Supreme Assembly of the party said during the party meeting on 16 February.
The Assembly decided to nominate the cairman of the party Sardar Jalaloglu for the presidential elections to be held in Azerbaijan in October in 2008.
