Azerbaijan, Baku, August 23 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
Agreeing candidates with the opposition Azerbaijan Popular Front Party is not an easy process, the chairman of the Musavat Party,
Isa Gambar, told reporters.
"The process to agree candidates from both parties is a complicated process. We have already passed most of the way, the issues of joint participation and compiling a single list will soon be resolved. Of course, there are difficulties, since agreeing the candidates in all districts is not an easy process. We are democratic organizations. The candidates wishing to participate in the parliamentary elections can make concessions only if they are ready," said Gambari.
During the event on the 21st anniversary of the Popular Front Party on July 15, the head of the Musavat Party, Isa Gambar, made an initiative to unify with the Popular Front Party. The two organizations are negotiating on this issue.
According to Gambar, the discussions on joint participation in the elections with Azerbaijan Popular Front Party continue in constructively.
"We plan to determine on which of the 125 constituencies an agreement can be reached. Perhaps, some districts will remain free, and everyone will be able to nominate themselves," Gambar said.
The parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are scheduled for November 7, 2010. Previous parliamentary elections were held in November 2005. Parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan are held by the majority system in 125 constituencies.
