The Head of the Press Service of the Azerbaijan Democratic Party (ADP), Nureddin Ismaylov, informed Trend that ADP members do not accept or trust the order of ADP's Chairman, Rasul Guliyev, to dismiss ADP First Deputy Chairman, Sardar Jalaoglu, from his position.
He said that Guliyev has signed an order dismissing Jalaloglu from his position. However, according to him, this order is unfounded and has no legal force. Because according to the requirements of ADP regulation, from January 27th all ADP electoral bodies have ceased, due to the fact that congress was held and the authorities of the ADP Chairman and all high bodies were transferred to the Organizational Committee for Preparation to Congress. Therefore, Guliyev's order is contrary to ADP regulations and presently he has no such authority. Simply those who demonstrate themselves as supporting Guliyev want to stay in the political stage and engage in cult of personality. They inaccurately informed Guliyev and he made such an order, Ismaylov said.
He added that the Organizational Committee will decline Guliyev's order and the Chairman of ADP High Assembly, Akif Shahbazov, will consider the accountability of the party.
Guliyev had expressed his distrust of the ADP decision on political talks between ADP High Assembly and power, which had been made on January 27th. Ismaylov said that this decision had been signed by 60 out of 80 members of High Assembly.
