I regard financing of political parties from the public budget as expedient. It will also help to clarify unclear moments related to parties, put an end to some issues, Lala Shovkat Hajiyeva, the leader of the National Unity Movement, also a co-chairman of Azadlig (Freedom) block, said to journalists, Trend reports. There are no problems in financing of parties, as the Azerbaijans oil incomes grow and the public budget increases.
According to Sardar Jalaloglu, the first deputy chairman of the Azerbaijan Democratic Party (ADP), also a co-chairman of Azadlig block, if political parties are financed by the state, they will manage to avoid foreign impact and serve only to state interests. Parties are one of the state attributes, while multi-party system is one of major principles of democratic society. Therefore, the state must finance the political parties, seeking for solution of problems of citizens and society.
