Azerbaijan, Baku, September 10 /Trend, T.Hajiyev/
Chairman of the Azerbaijani opposition party does not consider the APFP-Musavat pre-election bloc serious as political force.
"We do not consider the APFP-Musavat election bloc as the main rival for ourselves. APFP-Musavat union is not a serious political force in the Azerbaijani society. This becomes clear every time after the election results," chairman of the opposition Great Establishment Party and co-founder of the Reforms electoral bloc
Fazil Mustafa told Trend on Sept. 10.
The opposition Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (APFP) and the Musavat Party have established APFP-Musavat election bloc for the purpose of joint participation in the parliamentary elections. Those represented in the bloc say that exactly APFP-Musavat has a real political force in the parliamentary elections in the country.
According to Mustafa, these forces are trying to attract supporters through their populist speeches.
"To obtain vote based on the symptoms of discontent of the Azerbaijani society does not yet mean the power," Mustafa 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.
According to Mustafa, they see the main rival in the elections the ruling New Azerbaijan Party.
"They have huge material and political resources with a broad opportunities in this election. The most important thing for us is that we competed with each other in terms of cultural political competition," he said.
