Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 8 / Trend A. Huseynbala /
Azerbaijani opposition party leader does not believe in victory at the parliamentary elections.
"I do not want to give false promises because everything depends on our society's activity," Azerbaijani Liberal Party leader Lala Shovket Hajiyeva told Trend today.
The parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan in autumn. Earlier the elections were held in Nov. 2005. The parliamentary elections are held on a majority system in 125 constituencies in Azerbaijan.
"Entire people must participate in the electoral process. The last years demonstrate that voters are not active in this process," the party leader said.
Hajiyeva said the opposition must act in a united front in this hard situation.
"We will able to achieve it by putting an end to disassociation between opposition parties. It is necessary to cease talks in big and small parties," Hajiyeva said.
She said it is possible to achieve positive results while uniting the whole opposition group.
"I always support unity. I would like the opposition to realize seriousness of the situation at last and participate in the elections as a united power by quitting all pretensions. We are likely to achieve any result," she said.
She said if the opposition splits again, there will be no hope for success. "We act within Azadliq bloc. This bloc is sure to participate in the parliamentary elections," she said.
The Liberal Party headed by Lala Shovket was established in 1995. At present, she is a co-founder and a co-chairman of opposition political bloc Azadliq. She took a post of state secretary from July 1993-1994.
