Azerbaijan, Baku, 8 November/ Trend , corr I. Alizade/ Chief of Azerbaijan's opposition Musavat Party said at the party meeting that his party made a right decision not to nominate its own candidate for the presidential election.
"We have worked out future action plan of the party. We support larger cooperation of opposition. But this should be carried out stage-by-stage," Isa Gambar said.
The opposition parties who did not take part in the 15 October presidential election have begun negotiations to set up a larger coalition.
Musavat Party has been founded in October of 1911 in Baku. The party was restored in November of 1992 at the conference in the Republic Palace of Baku. Gambar was elected chief of the party as a result of the secret ballot.
Gambar has been speaker of the Azerbaijani parliament from 1992 to 1993. He was nominated for the 2003 presidential election. Party has four seats in the parliament.
Several opposition parties will achieve nothing by taking part in 2010 parliamentary election as a bloc.
"We can set up a single bloc and take part in the parliamentary election as we did in 2005. We it will change nothing," Musavat chief said.
The major task of opposition parties should be to change political situation in Azerbaijan. In addition to strengthening of opposition, the population must also be active, he added.
"We will acquaint other opposition parties with our 2009 action plan," Arif Hajili, head of central Executive Administration of the party said.
Musavat party will focus more on ensuring freedom of speech and media, assembly, setting up election commissions on equal basis, restricting authorities of president. Some of president's authorities should be given to the parliament and Cabinet of Ministers, Hajili said.
