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.
According to CPA chairman, during the elections co-operation of left parties is important. "We want the left parties to have its kind of camp. But it still remains a proposal. It is impossible to create a union with parties who have no base. Therefore, the realization of this issue is not yet possible," said Gurbanov.

Upon the decision taken at the extraordinary congress in 1991, the party's activities were suspended.
