Opposition party chairman: Conducting political rallies in Azerbaijan is non-productive way
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 18/Trend, T. Hajiyev/
Conducting political rallies in Azerbaijan is a nonproductive political way, Ali Aliyev, Chairman of the Citizens and Development Party of Azerbaijan (CDPA), told Trend on Monday, commenting on the attempts of staging the rallies.
"Insincere behavior in relation to the community, colleagues in the opposition produces no fruit. Everyone knows that no positive results are reachable through conducting rallies".
The CDPA and the Liberal Party of Azerbaijan (LPA) made an offer to member parties of the so-called Public Chamber and other opposition parties in connection with opposition unification model, said Aliyev.
"Our offer was thoughtful, based upon the dynamics of events. However, the PPFA and Musavat Party left the offer unanswered and chose the path of staging rallies. We saw from the beginning that it was no possible to accelerate processes through staging actions. Probably, the PPFA and Musavat Party will give an answer to our offer who knows when, but at that time, our reply will correspond to the then situation," Aliyev said.
There are currently different political conditions and situation in Azerbaijan so it is no possible to benefit politically from staging actions in the country.
"Conducting protest actions is a relatively long, unsuccessful way. The opposition suffers defeat every time at the end of such actions. And we, therefore, think it would be more correct to act not under the impact of certain events in foreign countries but proceeding from the internal situation in the country," the CDPA Chairman said.
The way the CDPA and the LPA offer is different and reflects the realities of the country.
"We go our own way. We will try to form a coalition around us. We think it is expedient to go together with those organizations, which share our political positions and with whom our political views coincide. At this way, self-organization work is of paramount importance. The priority is to win public trust back," Aliyev said.
