The MPs from Musavat Party held a news conference on Monday. Attending the event were Nasib Nasibli, Ikram Israfilov, Iltizam Asbarli and MP from Azadlig (Freedom) block Panah Husseyn, Trend reports.
Nasibli stressed that he was supported participation in the work of Milli Majlis [Parliament] from the utset and did not sign an address by MPs from Azadlig on boycotting of the work of Milli Majlis at the all-republican forum. He also said that the goal of Azadlig blocks participation in the parliamentary elections was to gain victory and the candidates from Musavat gained seats at Milli Majlis. According to Nasibli, everybody must be gratefull to these candidates. Participation in the work of Milli Majlis is right and legitime way, while some leaders of the opposition even dont know where to go, he added.
In their remarks, Israfilov and Akbarli noted that Musavat party made right and timely decision on participation in the by-elections and the work of the Milli Majlis.
Husseyn underlined that he waited for a single decision by Azadlig, but in case of failure in achievement of consensus by parties he would take part in the work of Milli Majlis. According to Husseyn, long experience shows that participation of opposition forces in the work of the Parliament strengthens their position and increases their authority. Im solidary with the decision by Musavat Party in this point of view and think that the tension, evolved at the block in this regard, is of temporally character. It will be eased soon and the parties will be consolidated, nominating single candidates in the elections. They have no other way, Husseyn noted.
