The idea, which is the basis of the Azerbaijani people's ideas about the presidential elections, has been directly related to the fact that Ilham Aliyev will remain the Azerbaijani President for the next five years, deputy chairman and executive secretary of the ruling New Azerbaijan party Ali Ahmadov said today at an event in the ruling party's office in Khatai district. It was held in connection with the ninth anniversary of Azerbaijani national leader Heydar Aliyev's demise.
The formation of such opinion has been related to Azerbaijan's development and this development reflected in each Azerbaijani citizen and each Azerbaijani family, he said.
"Every Azerbaijani citizen and Azerbaijani family feel this development and see Azerbaijan's further development under the leadership of President Aliyev," he said. "They consider Ilham Aliyev as their candidate at the presidential elections in 2013."
Azerbaijani youth agree on this view and this approach, he said.
Around 600,000 Azerbaijani citizens are members of the ruling party, he said.
