The Government of Azerbaijan has always supported the constructive co-operation with any parties in Azerbaijan, the Head of the Social-Political Department of the Executive Apparat of the Azerbaijani President, Ali Hasanov, exclusively informed Trend, commenting on the decision of the Azerbaijan Democratic Party on replacing radical policy with a constructive path.

Hasanov said that the Government considers the opposition parties as their rivals. We have always paid attention to constructive ideas of our opponents directed towards the development of Azerbaijan. If the Azerbaijan Democratic Party and other parties choose a constructive way, this will be welcomed by us, Hasanov said. Hasanov justified the change of position of the radical party because the fact that radicalism cannot find social support in Azerbaijan. We have been observing this radicalism since 1993. Over this period, most opposition parties held a radical position towards the Government. Therefore, they lost elections. It means that radicalism is not accepted by the Azerbaijani community, he said.

Hasanov spelled out that in all public parties, people reject radical policy and prefer normal relations. Certainly our opposition understands that after 15 years of hostility towards the Government and intentionally slandering initiatives of the Government does not have any prospects in and out Azerbaijan, he underlined.
