The Co-chairman of Azadlyg Block, Ali Aliyev, informed Trend that Azerbaijan Democratic Party (ADP) will not leave, but continue its activities in the Block.
On January 30th the Council of Co-chairmen of the Block held a meeting which focused on the decision made by the ADP High Assembly, the position on erecting a monument of the ex-President of Azerbaijan, Abulfaz Elchibay and the next mass action of the Block. According to Aliyev, it became clear during discussions that no changes have been made to the strategic goals and political course of the ADP and will remain as the Co-founder of Azadlyg. Information spread in the media has made ADP's position clearer. The First Deputy Chairman of ADP, Sardar Jalaloglu, openly stated that no changes have been made to the political course of the ADP. The ADP will participate in all mass actions of Azadlyg Block, Aliyev said.
According to Aliyev, several forces have distorted the decision of the ADP High Assembly. He said that the change of the ADP political course is linked with the initiative of the party to establish a political dialogue between party and power. Taking into consideration the tension in relations between the Government and the pposition, ADP invites the ruling New Azerbaijan Party to political talks and undertakes the mission of mediator for discussing problems between the Government and the opposition. We need to, in the future, transform relations that will be established between ADP and New Azerbaijan Party into relations between Government and opposition in general, Aliyev said.
