Democratic party chairman: Azerbaijani opposition not to achieve success by holding mass rallies
Azerbaijani, Baku, May 17 / Trend A. Huseynbala /
Attempts made by some political organizations to hold mass actions to change the current situation will not have any result, chairman of the Azerbaijani opposition party said.
"If the opposition wants to achieve some success in the parliamentary elections, it must elect a different tactic," chairman of the Azerbaijani Democratic Party Sardar Jalaloglu told Trend.
Azadliq bloc, Musavat Party and Umid attempted to hold mass protests in May.
The parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan in autumn 2010. The last legislative elections were held in November 2005. In Azerbaijan, the parliamentary elections are held by the majority system in 125 electoral constituencies.
He said that the issue of the mass rallies must be secondary for the opposition.
"We must strive for unity of opposition forces. Unfortunately, we failed to achieve any progress in this direction. We can restore public confidence in the opposition only via solidarity, the party chairman said.
He said that he does not intend to speak more with such an initiative.
"Once again I was convinced that our opposition has not fully learnt democratic values. Renewal of joint initiatives is senseless", he said.
