The opposition MPs refusal from mandates will not affect on the activities of the parliament, Bahar Muradova, the Vice speaker of the Milli Majlis [Azerbaijan], told Trend.

Muradova noted that all structures of the parliament have been formed, the commission set up their activities and designing of some draft laws is underway. “The resent of opposition MPs is not understandable. They suppose to achieve anything in this way. But they are mistaken. Their decision on boycott will not negatively impact on the work of the parliament,” she underlined.

Vice speaker noted that refusing from their mandates the MPs actually demonstrate disrespect towards the electors. “They ought to come to the parliament and participate in the adoption of laws promoting the development of the country and the electors’ welfare. They should not cast doubts on the legitimacy of the parliament standing aside.
