The name of the political bloc planned to be created by two opposition parties in Azerbaijan - Adalat and the Green Party, has been made public.
A decision was made to name the political bloc as 'Vatan' (Motherland) after long discussions, chairman of the Green Party Mais Gulaliyev told Trend on Wednesday.
He said that a political bloc is planned to be presented in late April. The organisation's programme has been adopted.
As for the presidential elections, a single candidate is expected to be nominated from the bloc, Gulaliyev said.
"This issue will be resolved by the end of next month," he said. "We will not support candidates from other parties. This is a final decision."
