The former MP doesn't intend to be a representative of intelligentsia of the member of any block which will be established in connection with coming parliamentary elections.
"I once again emphasize that, Nazim Imanov will never deal with political activity. It means that my participation in any bloc, even as an independent person is impossible" - Imanov said.
In 1995-2000, Nazim Imanov was an MP from the NIPA. After the presidential elections in 2003 he left the party. Imanov rivals in parliamentary elections in 2005 were the leader of NIPA Etibar Mammadov and Baku State University's rector (BSU) Abel Maharramov.
