Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 6 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
Azerbaijani political parties are wrong to hold public rallies and neglect other election tactics ahead of November parliamentary elections, the chairman of Great Establishment Party (GEP), Fazil Mustafa, has told Trend.
"Political forces that are not capable of innovation will repeat themselves. If they lack new thinking and are only able to hold a rally, we cannot make them to choose different, more modern tactics that corresponding to new realities. They think it is right, and, in fact they have this right. But we think differently," Mustafa said.
The opposition Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan (PFPA) and Musavat Party are planning to hold a rally on Oct.10.
But according to Mustafa, the joint action will not have much impact on the elections.
"What is the relationship between such joint meetings and the candidates who wish to succeed in specific constituencies? I regard this tactic is unsuccessful. If every candidate expands his activities in his constituency, he will reach greater success," he 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.
