Azerbaijan, Baku, July 14 / Trend T. Hajiyev /
The recent split in the Azadliq Bloc has changed the opposition landscape in Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani Democratic Party Chairman Sardar Jalaloglu told Trend.
"The split has created new realities in Azerbaijani policy," he said. "Now we must act taking into account these changes. Launching an even more powerful opposition bloc would be a positive factor."
Former Azadliq Bloc member Azerbaijani National Independence Party entered into negotiations with the Musavat party to create a new bloc. Other parties within Azadliq reacted sharply to the move, and called for completely shutting down the bloc.
Azadliq is represented by the Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan, the Liberal Party, and the Citizens and Development Party.
Jalaloglu commmented on the prospects of developng cooperation with Musavat.
"There are no permanent friends in policy," he said. "There are only eternal ideas. Our party is ready for any cooperation serving the interests of Azerbaijan and the party."The Democratic Party was founded in 1991 in Nakhchivan. The party was registered by the Azerbaijani Justice Ministry March 14, 1993. Jalaloglu was elected chairman in 1994 at the party's first congress.
