Azerbaijan's ruling party to run for the parliamentary elections with single list of candidates
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 13 /Trend, A.Huseynbala/
Azerbaijan's ruling party will try to run for the parliamentary elections with a single list of candidates.
"Each political party may nominate one candidate from one constituency. Nominating two candidates from one party in one constituency is perceived with a certain lack of understanding from the political point of view," deputy executive secretary of New Azerbaijan Party (NAP), MP
Mubariz Gurbanli told Trend on April 13.
The parliamentary elections were held in Azerbaijan in autumn 2010. Previously, elections were held in November 2005. In Azerbaijan, the parliamentary elections are held by the majority system in 125 electoral districts.
According to Gurbanli, in order not to face with this problem, certain recommendations were made as it was made in previous elections. "Regional organizations have been instructed that after determining the candidate, there should not be any questions about the name of the other members of the party," said the deputy executive secretary.
He said that this issue should be resolved inside the party forever. "We will try to avoid practices of nominating another member of our party as an alternative to the official candidate of the party," said Gurbanli.
NAP was founded in 1992 by national leader Heydar Aliyev, when he was chairman of the Supreme Majlis of Nakhchivan. Now, President
Ilham Aliyev heads the organization.
