APFP: Unification with APFP does not depend on Musavat party chairman’s will
Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan.27 / Trend T. Hajiyev /
Solving the issue of the Musavat party's unification with the Azerbaijani Popular Front Party (APFP) does not depend on Musavat Chairman Isa Gambar's will, the APFP believes.
"Charter of any party clearly says that congress is the party's supreme body. We support waiting for a congress as a body that reflects the party's will in all matters," APFP Deputy Chairman Fuad Gahramanli told Trend.
During a recent interview with the media outlets, the Musavat party chairman Isa Gambar said that the issues on unification with APFP will not be submitted for the congress's discussion.
"Musavat party's functionaries, party chairman assistants, have repeatedly stated in the media outlets that the discussions regarding the unification are underway. The party's majlis has neither a positive nor a negative response on this matter," Gahramanli said.
According to him, one cannot exclude the possibility of including the unification issue in the congress's agenda.
"At any party's congress, the congress representative has the right to submit the issue that he considers urgent for consideration. That's why it is wrong to consider that this issue will not be submitted for consideration. We call for patience. I hope the Musavat party's congress will discuss this issue. Then it will be possible to voice a position on this matter," Gahramanli said.
Musavat head Isa Gambar proposed to unite the parties following the course of Rasulzadeh-Elchibey on July 15 at the 21st anniversary event of the Popular Front of Azerbaijan. At the congress of the APFP, held on Sept. 25, the initiative was supported.
Musavat party's congress is scheduled for May 2011.
