NAP: Party will hold unified election campaign in parliamentary elections
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 23 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
The ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) has announced that it will hold a unified election campaign in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
"We will hold a unified election campaign [to promote our party, policies and candidates] in accordance with our objectives," the party's website today quoted NAP Deputy Chairman and Executive Secretary Ali Ahmedov as saying.
Parliamentary elections are scheduled for Nov. 7. Previous elections in the legislature were held in November 2005. In Azerbaijan, parliamentary elections are held on the majority system in 125 electoral districts.
The election campaign will kick off in earnest in mid-October.
The specifics of each electoral district must be taken into the account while holding the election campaign, Ahmedov said. "Each constituency and territory has its own specific terms and conditions in varying degrees," he said.
Ahmedov said the party will take into account constituencies' various features that require special consideration. Otherwise, it will be impossible to cope with an important task such as the implementation of general principles under the specific circumstances.
"So, the general objectives, an integrated strategy defined to achieve them and implementation of this strategy by each candidate on various constituencies generally form the essence of our campaign," he said.
Ahmedov said the NAP has all the necessary resources to achieve success in the elections.
"The mobilization of these resources in the parliamentary elections can provide a great assistance in achieving success for every candidate. Therefore, we prefer keeping the campaign on the basis of a coherent strategy and its tactics," he said.
NAP was founded in 1992 by former president and national leader Heydar Aliyev when he was chairman of the Supreme Majlis of Nakhchivan. The NAP ideology is based on "Azerbaijanizm," civil solidarity and the values of democracy. Current president, Ilham Aliyev, the late former president's son, now heads the organization. At present, the party is represented by 48 MPs in parliament.
