Destructive activities by Ali Ahmadov, started from his election as the chairman of the Azerbaijan National Independence Party (ANIP) and manifested in the adoption of decisions contradicting the Charter of the party, arbitrary resolutions on the policy of the party taken without discussions, as well as statements in the media, damaging the image of the party, still continue, the statement by the Political Council of the ANIP, on its chairman Ali Aliyev.
The statement says that Aliyev willfully and grossly violated the requirements of the Charter concerning the time of the meeting of the Political Board. Members of the Political Council stated that immediately after the parliamentary elections Aliyev took attempts to tense the situation within the ANIP artificially, some inner-party issues were purposefully put for media with regard to paralyze the activities of the party.
Refusing from the implementation of the tasks, that he is charged in, Aliyev continued destructive activities, grossly violating some items of the Charter of the ANIP. Taking into consideration the fact, in compliance with 57 articles of the Charter of the ANIP, the Political Council states on convening of a meeting for discussion of the inner-party situation and vote of non-confidence on the chairman, he said.
Regarding the issue Aliyev said that the gathering held by members of the Political Council and a statement on the vote of non-confidence upon the chairman was illegal. The gathering of the Political Council can be convened only by the chairman and over 5 days prior to the gathering the chairman should receive a relevant demand. The agenda of the illegal meeting of the Political Council completely differs from the content of the campaign of collection of signatures which took place before. The meeting of the Political Council held on 30 December 2005 and meeting of the Central Council scheduled for 8 January were illegitimate, Aliyev stressed. He noted that as a chairman he scheduled the meeting of the Central Council to 7 January 2006.
