Azerbaijan, Baku, July 9 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
The ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) declared on its position on the participation of its candidates in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
"Nomination of his/her candidacy is a right of every citizen. But, the nomination of the NAP members not entering the -single list is contrary to the party's will and policy. For this reason, we can not stay in one party with such persons. One of the fundamental issues at the meetings in organizations is that the party will nominate only one candidate to each of the constituencies and other party members will support this candidate, providing the necessary assistance," NAP Deputy Executive Secretary Siyavush Novruzov told Trend.
Parliamentary elections will be held in Azerbaijan Nov. 7, 2010. Previous elections were held in November 2005. The elections are held according to the majority system in Azerbaijan's 125 constituencies..
According to Novruzov, if so, these people's relations with the party will be reviewed.
"If any NAP member intends to nominate himself then it must do so as a citizen, but he will not receive any support from the party and his relations with the party will be reviewed," Novruzov said.
Novruzov also spoke about preparations of a list of candidates from the ruling party in parliamentary elections.
"Now the process is underway. The NAP holds final meeting with representatives of regional and municipal organizations. This process is studied thoroughly in accordance with pre-election program. That is, we study which candidates being MPs will be nominated for. There will also be studied extension of alternative, etc. This process is already nearing completion in relation to Baku. This process will continue in the regions and villages until the elections. After receiving all the information and assess the capacity of our candidates, of course, will be issued a list of candidates and constituencies in which they will nominate their candidates," Novruzov said.
