Ruling party: No social support for radical opposition
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 4 / Trend, M. Aliyev /
The low number of participants in the illegal rallies on Saturday proves that Azerbaijan's radical opposition has no social support, ruling New Azerbaijan Party Deputy Executive Secretary Mubariz Gurbanli told Trend.
He said the opposition's attempt failed to hold an unsanctioned rally in the city center.
Fountain Square in the middle of Baku is not a place for protests, he said. The protests were prevented by the law enforcement agencies, Gurbanli added.
The community did not support the opposition's initiative, he said.
The Public Chamber uniting opposition parties attempted to hold an illegal rally on Fountain Square on April 2. Police broke up the illegal rally.
