The Azerbaijan Social Democratic Party (ASDP), entering New Policy election block, made a decision on leaving the block, Araz Alizade, the chairman of the party, told Trend.
He noted that the plenary session of the central board of the party was held on Wednesday. The session discussed participation in the by-elections, appointment of representative to the Central Election Committee (CEC), leaving the block and other issues. ASDP appointed 3 representatives with major suffrage and 1 with consultative suffrage to CEC.
It should be mentioned that New Policy block made a decision on participation of its members separately in the by-elections. Therefore, ASDP can not run for the by-elections as a member of the block. It decided to leave the ranks of the block due to participation of the central board of the party in the by-elections. The party will nominate the candidacy of Araz Alizade. He will choose either Sumgayit-Absheron constituency 44 or Nizamy 2nd constituency (Ganja) to ballot in the elections.
Alizade also stressed that they held negations on transmission of New Policy election block into political one. ASDP is also to be represented in this block.
