Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept.1. / Trend J. Babayeva /
The Azerbaijani Greens Party (AGP) and the opposition Umid party began to develop joint document on cooperation.
"The document may be favorable basis for the creation of the coalition. The basic principles in the document include maintaining parties' independence, equal participation in elections and sharing logistics base of the parties. The document is expected to be developed by late this week," Mais Gulaliyev, chairman of the AGP told Trend on Sep.1.
The cooperation in the upcoming municipal, parliamentary and presidential elections will be reflected in the document. After its completion, the document will be discussed at both parties' meeting and then submitted for the public discussions. The both parties do not want to hurry the development of the document. If the document satisfies the both parties, it will be possible to jointly participate in municipal elections, Gulaliyev added.
Gulaliyev believe this document may be an example for the opposition camp. "Unity between the parties should not be in words, but be based on a serious document," the chairman of the AGP said.
The AGP was founded in December 2006 and so far, has not passed a state registration. In June, 2009, "Greens" applied to about 20 political parties, offering joint participation in municipal elections.
Azerbaijan will hold the municipal elections in December 2009.
