Aydinlar Opposition Party Established in Azerbaijan

Aydinlar Opposition Party Established in   Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec.14 / Trend , I.Alizade/ New opposition party Aydinlar was established in Azerbaijan. The Aydinlar Party will take part in all elections in the country. The immediate objective of the party is to take part in the 2009 municipal and 2010 parliamentary elections. We plan to partake in the presidential election of 2013," said Gulamhuseyn Alibayli, former MP and the chairman of the new party.

The founding meeting of the party held on Dec. 14 involved 201 representatives.

Gulamhuseyn Alibayli was late President Elchibay's advisor and official representative at the parliament in 1992 and 1993. He was elected MP of the Azerbaijani Parliament from 1995 to 2005 and member of the Azerbaijani delegation at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. Alibayli joined the Popular Front Part of Azerbaijan (PFPA) in 1989 and was elected chairman of the PFPA Supreme Assembly in 1993. He resigned from the chairman position at the beginning of August 2008 and decided to establish new Aydinlar Party at the end of September 2008. Nizami Guliyev, a member of the PFPA, said that he would join Aydinlar Party, resigning from PFPA.

Chairmen of the PFPA regional organizations in Lankaran, Samukh and Gakh resigned at the beginning of October and said that they would continue their political activities at Aydinlar Party.

The decision to establish the Aydinlar Party was made on Sep. 24 this year and the organizing committee consisting of five members was established on the same day, said Gulamguseyn Alibayli, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Aydinlar Party.

According to Alibayli, local party branches were established in 30 regions and cities throughout the country.

"There are over 50 parties in Azerbaijan. They have limited capacity to implement socio-political activities in the country. In such circumstances, political relations are not based on the law and political ethics. The opposition and the authorities do not recognize each other. Therefore, the society has reached a deadlock," he said.

As a result, politicians have lost the trust of the citizens, he said.

He said that in order to restore trust in politicians, the new party would attempt to enforce a non-traditional policy. "We will try to remove mistrust both to the opposition and the authorities."

Unlike the traditional opposition, we will not pursue a policy of "non-recognition of authorities", Alibayli said. "Our main purpose is not demonstrations. Our priorities are settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and improvement of electoral legislation through cooperation with all political forces."

The founding meeting elected 45 members to the Aydinlar Supreme Assembly and five to the Aydinlar Supervision Commission. Charter of the party was approved.

Gulamhuseyn Alibayli was elected chairman of the new opposition party by a landslide.
