Two Azerbaijani Opposition Parties not to Join New Alliance
Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr. S.Ilhamgizi / Sardar Jalaloglu, the Chairman of the Azerbaiajn Democratic Party ADP, has stated that the Open Society Party of Azerbaijan and the National Independent Party of Azerbaijan will not join the new alliance of opposition.
The Chairman offered to form a new consultative union based on cooperative opposition forces and appealed to Isa Gambar, Eldar Namazov, Etibar Mammadov and others to form the union.
"Etibar Mammadov, the head of the Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan, and Rasul Guliyev, the head of the Open Society Party of Azerbaijan, did not support the idea. I consider such action normal, because not everybody thinks and supports opposition. The new alliance will not put conditions before parties," Jalaloglu stressed.
The ADP was established in 1991. In January the ADP changed its political course to engage in dialogue with the ruling party.
During the IX meeting of the ADP, held on 27 May, Sardar Jalaloglu was elected Chairman of the Party.
