Azerbaijan, Baku, March.12 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
Consultations on the creation of the largest electoral bloc of the Azerbaijani opposition are under way.
"We will continue consultations with the parties represented in the Azadliq bloc in order to establish the largest electoral bloc of the opposition in the parliamentary elections," Azerbaijan Democratic Party (ADP) head Sardar Jalaloglu told Trend today.
Parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan in fall 2010. Previous elections were held in November 2005. The elections are held according to the majority system in Azerbaijan's 125 constituencies.
"Our goal is to create a unity of the opposition and participate in the elections with a single candidate," he said.
If the idea fails, then only few parties will remain aside and consultations over the issue will continue, he said.
"I oppose the submission of any pre-requests for the creation of the block. Those who think they are part of the opposition must unite for the elections," he said.
"We discussed principles, associated with the creation of a new electoral bloc in the parliamentary elections, with the ADP chairman," Ali Aliyev, the Citizens and Development Party chairman, told Trend today.
