A parade organized by the party with the participation of 150 communists was held in Ganja. Our parade was successful; city residents were sympathetic to us.

The workers day was celebrated in Sumgayit and several districts of Baku city, he said. Actions` participants held red ribbons and cited mottoes. When I was MP, I have raised this issue in parliament. If there are workers in Azerbaijan, it means that the holiday should be made official, he said.
