Azerbaijan, Baku, March.10 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
The culprits of the fact that the opposition has not united due to the parliamentary elections, are some party leaders, opposition deputy in the Azerbaijani parliament said.
"Separation of opposition is suitable for both leaders and functionaries of some parties,"
Musavat party parliamentary group member, represented in the Union for Democracy Panah Huseynov told Trend today.
The parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan in autumn 2010. The previous elections were held in November 2005. The parliamentary elections are held by the majority system in 125 constituencies in Azerbaijan.
This is the reason why the discussion about the participation of the opposition in the parliamentary elections as a single block does not give a positive result, Huseyn said.
MP supports proposals to create two blocks of the opposition to participate in the parliamentary elections. "It is easier to create unity between two blocs rather than among 10-12 parties," MP said said.
If the opposition does not participate in the elections as a single block, cooperation in the election process is possible. "It's possible to cooperate on issues such as establishment of democratic electoral environment, changes in election laws, as well as the choice of a common position in regard to electoral commissions, to coordinate an electoral campaign, the joint organization of observation during the voting," Huseyn said.
