The National Unity Movement and the Liberal Party held a rally in Galaba square of Baku at 17:00 on Saturday, Trend reports.
Attending the action were representatives of political parties, intelligentsia, fighters and law-defenders. Prof. Lala Shovkat Hajiyeva, the leader of the National Unity, made a speech to the gathering. She called on the nation to national unity for the rehabilitation of the justice and struggle for their rights.
В"It would not be right to blame only the authorities for the problems,вЂќ stressed Hajiyeva, complaining of indifference of the people. They are afraid of staging rallies. вЂќI call on you to know your constitution rights.
In his address Khalid Alimirzayev, the leader of the Intelligent Movement вЂ�AmalвЂ™, attributed Hajiyeva as a women etalon in Azerbaijan. He stated that the people of Azerbaijan deserve to live in the democratic society, to take a deserved place among world countries and to fight in for the ideas.

In his turn Tanzila Rustamkhanly, the chairman of the Azeri Turk Women Union, said that the people will prefer Hajiyeva while making its choice selecting, as she sacrificed its fate, health, financial security, and health. According to Rustamkhanly, the value of Hajiyeva, who is a model for all leading politicians and who targets the national unity, should be recognized.
