A meeting of opposition leaders in the new format was conducted in Azerbaijan.
"Our first meeting with the participation of the leaders of Azerbaijan Popular Front Party, the Classical Popular Front Party and Musavat Party focused on the integration of the opposition and the public-political situation in the country," said chairman of the Azerbaijan Democratic Party Sardar Jalaloglu.
According to Jalaloglu, despite the discussion of joint activities of the four parties in the parliamentary elections, no concrete decisions were made.
"We will continue discussions. I hope that we will come to a common denominator for the integration of the opposition to cooperate during the election campaign by the official launching of the election," said Jalaloglu.
Opposition leaders first began discussions in this format, said the chairman of the Classic Popular Front Party Mahmud Miralioglu.
"There were initial consultations. All the issues on the agenda were discussed, including issues of participation in the elections with a single list. Still it is unknown how the results will be," said Miralioglu.
The proposal to hold a meeting in this format was made by Sardar Jalaloglu, Miralioglu said.
Today the headquarters of Musavat hosted a meeting of head of Musavat Party Isa Gambar, chairman of Azerbaijan Popular Front Party Ali Kerimli, chairman of Azerbaijan Democratic Party Sardar Jalaloglu and chairman of Classic Popular Front Party Mahmud Miralioglu.
The parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan in autumn this year. Previous legislative elections were held in November 2005. In Azerbaijan, the parliamentary elections are held by the majority system in 125 electoral constituencies.
