New Model of Azerbaijani Opposition Union Proposed
Azerbaijan, Baku, 4 Dec. / Trend , corr. A.Huseynbala /The Democratic Party of Azerbaijan (DPA) proposed a model of unification for opposition coalition. Chairman of DPA Sardar Jalaloglu believes it possible to create a new united opposition of Azerbaijani parties only with participation of five or six parties.
"Parties, which will be represented in the new bloc, must be high organized with the same position and must be ready for sincere cooperation," Jalaloglu, said to Trend on 4 Dec.
Center for Opposition Cooperation includes bloc Azadlig (Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan, Liberal Party, Citizens and Development Party), Musavat Party and For Azerbaijan public forum. At early September, parties included in Azadlig bloc the (the Popular Front Party, the Liberal Party and the Citizen and Development), the Musavat Party and the Public Forum 'For Azerbaijan' signed a joint statement on recognition of the presidential elections to be held on 15 October as illegitimate. Government to be formed after the presidential elections, are announced as illegitimate in the statement.
Talks began after the election to create a large coalition of opposition. But mutual accusations hinder establishment of a larger coalition.
According to Jalaloglu, there is no need in establishment of a bloc with participation of many parties.
"Parties of the new union is known in Azerbaijan and world," Jalaloglu added.
To speak about a union, where integration is absent or political forces will combine today or tomorrow means to let down society. "The key reason why the union has not been established so far is due to unwillingness of some parties," Jalaloglu said.
DPA was founded by Jalaloglu in 1991. The party took a radical position against the Government until 2007. In January 2007, the party took a new political course and improved relations with the authorities. Protesting against such an action Rasul Guliyev, the ex-chairman, and his supporters left the party and founded the Open Society party
