Party chairman: Unification of Azerbaijani opposition at this stage seems impossible
Azerbaijan, Baku, August 6 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
Unification of Azerbaijani opposition at this stage is impossible, chairman of the opposition Umid Party
Igbal Aghazadeh told Trend on August 6.
"At this stage, the difference in opinions prevents the unification of the opposition. Political organizations that have single opinion can unite. Meanwhile, the opposition parties in Azerbaijan do not think similar. The politicians have brought their personal relationships to the political processes. As a result, they can not unite," said Aghazadeh.
Unification is possible only after the parliamentary elections, Aghazadeh said.
"Different or the expected unification of the opposition parties in Azerbaijan will be possible only after the elections. After the parliamentary elections, a new period will begin for the Azerbaijani opposition. The opposition parties will understand what the real struggle means and understand the philosophy to struggle," said Aghazadeh.
The parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are scheduled for Nov. 7, 2010. Previous parliamentary elections were held in November 2005. Parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are conducted through the majority system in 125 constituencies.
According to Aghazadeh, the problem of unification is not priority for the Umid Party.
"Negotiations are conducted with a number of opposition parties, but the issue is not priority for Umid Party in advance of the parliamentary elections. The priority is party's independent participation in the elections," said Aghazadeh.
