Azerbaijan, Baku, June 19 / Trend J. Babayeva /
Azerbaijani opposition National Independence Party will address with proposal about creation of municipality of Baku.
"Creation of municipality of Baku became more urgent on the threshold of municipal elections. Creation of municipalities in cities-capitals meets requirements of time. Neighboring countries have such experience. Executive power is charged with management of Baku. Activity of this agency is evident," secretary on press and propaganda of the party Ali Orujev told Trend on June 19.
Azerbaijan joined the charter of CE local municipality. Upon the charter, elected body manages capital. Azerbaijan joined the document. But executive power deals with appointment to manage Baku and other big cities. Mayor will be elected in the nearest future in capitals of Georgia and Armenia joined the charter. Earlier Azerbaijani MPs Aydin Mirzazadeh and Zahid Oruj told Trend that do not consider creation of mayor status in Baku necessary.
The party repeatedly addressed with proposal about creation of municipality of Baku and submitted it to the Parliament, administration of the President, Orujev said.
"Unfortunately, our proposal was not taken into account. Meeting of political council of the party will be held in the nearest future. Municipal elections, current situation in Iran were planned to be discussed at the meeting. Proposal about creation and forming of municipality of Baku is likely to be adopted again via elections," official representative of the party said.
Azerbaijani National Independence Party was the first party passing state registration. The party was established in 1992. The party split after its founder and chairman Etibar Mammadov left the party late 2004. After appointment of Ali Aliyev, several members of the party left the party as a sign of protest. Presently, Mammadov is deputy chairman of the International Democratic Union.
